Named after Indian cricketer Vinoo Mankad, it's a specific run-out dismissal in the game of cricket. When the batsman at the non-striker's is run out by the bowler before the ball is bowled, due to excessive backing up, he is said to have been mankaded.
In 2007 Gayle tried to mankad Vaughan at Chester-le-Street, but failed and received a withering look for his effort.
