full toss

Bouncers are fast bowlers lethal weapon who use it to contain the batsman from playing on front foot for instance drives and force him to move back to his back foot. Bouncers are usually shot pitched deliveries of chest or head height, they can be even higher than head height.  Any defensive move by a batsman on a bouncer is to evade any hit from the ball and to avoid losing his wicket. Conversely, a Hook shot is a shot played on bouncer if a batman is in attacking mood, however; the hook shots mostly result in fall of wickets.
There is a misconception that all fast bowlers can deliver bouncers. Bouncers come with pace and not with a hefty speed. It is important for a fast bowler to maintain pace where the ball should ideally come on to a batsman’s chest height or throat height.  A frequent fault which fast bowlers sometime make is to deliver the ball too short or not with enough pace. This enables the ball to bounce somewhat like a tennis ball and comes down as it reaches the striker. So do practice, it will make you perfect.

How to ball a full toss?

A full toss ball is a delivery, which reaches the striker without any bounce on the pitch. Simplistically,  it’s a ball delivered by the bowler straight on the bat without touching the pitch/ground. Full toss ball  is not a choice of  fast bowlers as it can mostly incur them runs. Whereas, for a batman it’s a treat to play. Full toss balls sometimes are generated once the bowler is intended for a Yorker and due to an unintentional divergence of length it converts into full toss. Sometimes, a full toss ball can be shocker fast if the ball is not properly taken by the striker on the bat, it can result in fall of a wicket. However, the fast bowlers usually do not rely on the full toss. here have been incidents in cricket history where the bowlers intentionally delivered full toss to attain full swing into the heart of the stumps, This was done mostly when lower order batsmen are on the pitch. For an upcoming bowler, Pakistan’s legendary bowlers Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis are good example to emulate. Both the players are famous for delivering such balls and taking crucial wickets through full toss on various occasions.
