No-ball rules

The following Laws have been taken from the Lords.org website and are intended to clarify the laws for balls bowled as 'full-tosses'.

Law 42.6 (fair and unfair play)

Bowling of high full pitched balls:

Any delivery, other than a slow paced one, which passes or would have passed on the full above waist height of the striker standing upright at the crease is to be deemed dangerous and unfair, whether or not it is likely to inflict physical injury on the striker.

A slow delivery which passes or would have passed on the full above shoulder height of the striker standing upright at the crease is to be deemed dangerous and unfair, whether or not it is likely to inflict physical injury on the striker.

As soon as the umpire at the bowler's end decides .... there is an instance of dangerous and unfair bowling, as defined above, he shall call and signal No ball. When the ball is dead, then caution the bowler, inform the other umpire & the captain of the fielding side.

The following should also be called as no-balls:
1) If the ball bounces more than twice before it reaches the batsman.
2) If the ball rolls all along the ground
