full toss

Definition

Cricket

  • noun a ball bowled right up to the batsman so that it does not pitch before reaching the bat. The full toss relieves the batsman of any of the difficulties associated with movement off the pitch and uneven bounce, and unless very fast it also eliminates the crucial problem of assessing the ball’s length. It is, therefore, generally regarded as a bad delivery.
