A straight ball delivery in Bowling is when the player tosses the ball in a relatively straight line towards the pins. This would be in opposition to other delivery styles, namely the curving, spinning delivery most professionals can be seen using.

How many types of no balls r there in cricket and what are they?

A no-ball is a no-ball... If you mean what are the different infringements to cause the umpire to call, the main offender (and all medium and quick bowlers do this at some point) is overstepping the crease in the delivery stride. You could also be no-balled for failing to keep the delivery arm straight (aka 'chucking'), and in limited over forms of the game for bowling persistently short-pitched deliveries that pass the batsman above shoulder height. Bowling when the umpire has called you to abort the delivery, will also have the same result.
