Full tosses are sparingly bowled deliberately, as they defeat the purpose of most types of delivery, which is to deceive the batsman by bouncing unpredictably on the pitch.

Occasionally a full toss can surprise a batsman so effectively that he is unable to play it properly, and this can lead to a wicket, but no bowler relies on this.

A full toss that reaches the batsman above waist height from a fast bowler is a no ball under the Laws of Cricket, as is any full toss above shoulder height for a spinner.

A bowler who inadvertently bowls such a delivery will usually apologise to the batsman. In the sport of cricket a no ball is an illegal delivery by the bowler. ...

Full tosses below the waist are also commonly accidental. They can be caused by mistiming in the bowler's action as he attempts a yorker or changes his hand grip to produce a deceptive slower ball. In cricket, a yorker is a delivery where the cricket ball bounces on the cricket pitch on or near the batsmans popping crease. ...


A full toss can also be used by a bowler to deliberately intimidate weaker, lower order batsmen, though the risk of a delivery being called a no-ball by the umpire is higher aginst such batsmen.
