What is Mankading?

  • Mankading is a kind of dismissal witnessed in the game of cricket.
  • Mankading is the situation where a bowler run out a non-striker by hitting the bails before bowling when the non-striker is outside the crease, with no warning.
  • Even though it is a legal way of dismissing the batsmen, it is considered as unethical and against the spirit of the game.

Reason behind the name "Mankading":

  • The name Mankading is derived due to the fact that for the first time Indian bowler Vinoo Mankad had dismissed Bill Brown of Australia, by removing the bails when the latter was away from the crease during India's tour of Australia in 1947.
  • Hence the dismissal is named after the Indian Cricketer Vinoo Mankad.
