When a ball is thrown up in a moving train, it comes back to the person's hands instead of falling backwards. Why?

During its upward and downward motion, the ball continues to move with the same horizontal velocity as the train. In this period, the ball covers the same horizontal distance as the train and so it comes back to the hands of the person throwing it.
