According to Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), this method of dismissal was renamed from 'Mankad' to "run-out."

Australia defeated South Africa by an innings and 182 runs in the second Test, which was played in Melbourne. However, on the way towards victory, Mitchell Starc had to issue a warning to Proteas batter Theunis de Bruyn.
While running out a batter at the non-striker's end is part of the ICC rules, still many still object to it citing "Sprite of the Game".
The same incident took place on Day 4 of the second Test when Starc stopped mid-bowling and warned batter Theunis de Bruyn against leaving the line at the non-striker's end.
De Bruyn was forewarned by Starc, who can be caught yelling at the batsman on the Stump mike. "Stay in the crease. It’s not that hard. It’s (the crease) there for a reason mate!" Starc can be heard saying.
Talking about the run-out or as many still call it 'Mankad', Indian women's cricket team all-rounder Deepti Sharma had got England's Charlotte Dean out at the non-striker's end. It was England's final wicket which led to India winning the ODI series 3-0. Although the dismissal is well within the law, several former and present English cricket players were unhappy with the way India won the game.
According to Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), this method of dismissal was renamed from 'Mankad' to "run-out." Later, the MCC also responded to the Deepti Sharma incident, declaring "MCC's message to non-strikers continues to be to remain in their ground until they have seen the ball leave the bowler's hand. Then dismissals, such as the one seen yesterday, cannot happen."
And surely when one talks about 'Mankad' no one could ever forget Ravichandran Ashwin doing the same to Jos Buttler in the 2019 Indian Premier League (IPL).
