Thought so too but perhaps on TV from front on you don't get a sense of how big the stride forwards is as ball hits pad.I never can understand how ball tracking can predict the amount of turn. I honestly thought Leach just got that batsmen out. It looked out on the naked eye.
Didn't see it. But yes, spinners that hit the boot are obviously difficult to predict. Surprised that ball tracking is allowed in that case. But....There was an overturned decision for Broad earlier that he got full on the boot - ball tracker showed it going straight on and missing ( which it probably wouldn't have done) because ball tracker doesn't predict turn.
I kinda get how it projects the turn but how does it predict height of bounce ?Yes but it’s the amount of turn. I’m not saying it’s the wrong decision but just looked out to me and surprised when ball tracking noted it would miss the stumps.

No but you can't have technology guessing. I felt for the umpire as it was almost certainly a correct decision to give him out.From elsewhere
"This is specified in the Playing Conditions, for example in Appendix D Decision Review System (DRS) and Third Umpire Protocol, part 3.4 Review of LBW Decisions:
When the ball strikes the batsman on the full, and the evidence provided by the ball-tracking technology indicates that the ball would have pitched before striking or passing the wicket, there will be no information available from that delivery that will allow the ball-tracking technology to accurately predict the height of the ball after pitchingWith regard to determining whether the ball would have hit the wicket under these circumstances, the ball-tracking technology shall project the line of the ball in accordance with clause 36.2.3 (it is to be assumed that the path of the ball before interception would have continued after interception, irrespective of whether the ball might have pitched subsequently or not), and display the simulated path of the ball from directly above the wicket."
Doesn't sound ideal, does it?
Exactly, it is guessing. It's guessing that the ball doesn't deviate on bouncing, and also assumes that it won't go over the wicket (which, to be fair, is an assumption that would be correct in virtually all cases)No but you can't have technology guessing. I felt for the umpire as it was almost certainly a correct decision to give him out.
