Setting an attacking field

Attacking field

With three slips, a gully and a short-leg all up in catching positions, this is an attacking field you're most likely to see at the start of a Test match.

The bowler needs to bowl an attacking line on or just outside off stump.

The field can be made more attacking by moving the mid-on fielder, into either fourth slip or point.
