Attacking field Defensive 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
A defensive field is often used if a team is conceding too many runs or if a bowler is struggling to bowl a regular line and length.
Setting a Off, or Leg-side field
Off side Leg-Side
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.
Bowling to a leg-side field is usually seen as a defensive move.
