Call it a run-out: Vinoo Mankad’s son Rahul writes email to BCCI, objecting ‘Mankading’ usage
Run-outs affected by bowlers when the non-striker backs up too far are popularly, although unofficially, known as ‘Mankading’. The term came into effect when legendary Indian all-rounder Vinoo Mankad ran out Bill Brown for backing up too far during India’s tour to Australia in 1948. Since then, this form of dismissal is commonly termed as Mankad. However, the late all-rounder’s only surviving son, Rahul Mankad, isn’t amused by the fact.
