Attacking:

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

Defensive:

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.

How to set on off-side field     A leg-side field

Off-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.

Leg-side:

Bowling to a leg-side field is usually seen as a defensive move.
