A ball can be a no ball for several reasons


 If the bowler bowls from the wrong place

 If he straightens his elbow during the delivery

If the bowling is dangerous

If the ball bounces more than twice or rolls along the ground before reaching the batsman or if the fielders are standing in illegal places.


A no ball penalizes the bowler by having him bowl one additional delivery and adds one run to the batting side.
