Setting an off-side field

How to set on off-side field

If your team has a bowler who can bowl a tight line and length just outside off stump, then it's possible to set an off-side field to reflect this.

With seven fielders on the off side, it's very difficult for the batting side to score runs.

But this field can only be set for a very accurate bowler.

Anything on middle or leg stump will be worked away to the empty leg-side and will provide easy runs.
