As someone who has previously worked for one of the two ball tracking companies, I can answer this.
The system doesnt know what the bowler has attempted to do, nor does it need to.
Its purely works on the data its got post bounce to work out the path the ball is travelling along until impact and then using that information it predicts where the ball would have impacted the stumps, had it not been stopped.

Umpires call is in there to help cover the umpires and back there decision making rather than to purely cover for the ball tracking.

Thats interesting, apologies if others have discussed on here but if it works from after the ball has bounced, how does it work out how high or how steep the ball will end up?

This shouldn't have been allowed to happen.

Scrapped sky sports last year but it's not on there anyway which is a bit of a con.

I've been back to my youth listening to the SL series on BBC test match and it's been great.

Talk sport is painful. I suppose they will dig up Swann for it, that is double pain

That's it for me and Sky Sports. Far too expensive for mostly repeats. Hardly ever watch football any more, so too expensive for what you get. Will just pay for a day or month at a time via Now TV from now on.

It doesnt totally discount the information pre bounce, just the important information is post bounce. It purely plots the balls position in 3D space. Using 8 different camera angles, the down the wicket shots (give you the line) and then the run out cameras (gives you the height).
