Kaba-data: All You Need To Know About Fantasy Kabaddi

One would be surprised as to how popular the game actually is. From the animated cartoon Chhota Bheem to a popular Hindi Movie, Pardes, a lot depended on the outcome of Kabaddi in it. Yes, from children to adults, this game is watched and loved passionately. Now, not only do we get to watch over 113 matches by 12 teams, we get to play it on the Fantain App as well.
So let’s get our basics covered before we get into how to pick a fab lineup. The rules of the game are simple. There are two teams of seven each(five reserve players). They face each other for two halves of twenty minutes each. Each player has to run across the center line into the opponent’s half of the court, tag as many players as possible and get back safely to his side. The trick is to do this in one breath while chanting ‘Kabaddi Kabaddi Kabaddi’.
Players are ‘revived’ and brought back to the game in the order in which they were out. Changing the order will result in a point for the opponent. Players are tagged and made out by making contact only with limbs and torso. Grabbing hair or clothes - not allowed.
Raiding
Each team sends players - known as Raiders - one at a time - into the opponent’s side of the court. The purpose is to tag the opponents, as many as possible, and return to his side. The raider has to be fast, sharp and should think on his feet.
Defense
The defense has to run as fast as possible from the raider and not be tagged at any point. The idea is to prolong and let the raider run out of breath.
How to play Kabaddi on Fantain
Fantasy Kabaddi is nothing but a game of skill. Learn as much as you can about the game and the players and you can win something as well on our Fantain App.
We need to pick the players who have an edge over the others when it comes to agility and the style of movement. The speed at which the player moves and the ability to tag and slip away makes all the difference to the scoreboard.
In your team, you will need the following players.
Defenders (DEF): Pick minimum 1 & maximum 5 All Rounders (AR): Pick minimum 1 & maximum 5 Raiders (RAID): Pick minimum 1 & maximum 5
While playing cricket, you may choose to go in with four batsmen, three bowlers or five batsmen and four bowlers. Kabaddi is not so different. The strategy that you have in mind directly affects the number of defenders and raiders you wish to have on your team.
The combination is crucial. You can have 2 raiders, 2 All rounders, and 3 Defenders or 2 Raiders, 1 All Rounder, and 4 Defenders. Every team can be described as an attacking or defensive team.

Olympic Coverage

What does Olympics mean for you?
I have watched the last couple of Olympics in NBC in the US.The coverage was all US (understandable, though irritating) and it was all about the US players.Where they come from, their trials and tribulations, their sacrifices, the heartaches, the dizzying success, their work ethic – everything added to the narrative for me.It was always the personal story that got me and kept me tuning in and watching all kinds of sports.
This time, I am watching it in India.There is a lot more coverage of events that India is not participating in (understandable – India does not participate in much J) and so the event is truly international.But there are NO stories.  This is just one event after another without pausing to cover the players involved at all.   I cannot distinguish one athlete from the other.I can’t pick favourites, because I do not know much about anyone.Given this, I am unable to watch a lot of sports that I do not necessarily care about.
Give me NBC any …

Editor's Pick (T20): India - New Zealand

The ODI series of three matches was really fun. Close finish. Big numbers on the board. There are gonna be more people expecting more excitement from the T20 matches that begin tomorrow - 1st November 2017.And why not?

A little bit of trivia. Did you know that the first T20 match was played on June 13th, 2003? Introduced in England and Wales, it was played between the two English Countries. The first international match was played by women. Yup you read that right. England and New Zealand Women. By men later in 2005. India’s first ICC World T20 was in 2016. Fun facts - Pakistan is the first and only team to have played 100 T20 international cricket matches. Wonder how that happened. India has played 72 and won 44 of them. Most sixes in an innings is by Netherlands. Yup that’s right. Virat Kohli holds the record of most runs in a calendar year with 536 runs in 11 innings. This happened in 2016. He also holds the record for most fifties in his career. Yay Kohli.

Coming to tomorrow’s mat…

Editor’s Pick (T20): India - Sri Lanka

A young and relatively inexperienced team, the players are full of enthu and raring to go as they face Sri Lanka at home tomorrow for their first T20 match of the Nidahas Trophy. I’ll tell you one thing. India is full of confidence. The boys have beaten the lions before in their own den. Not just beaten but a brutal defeat the Lions faced. Team Sri Lanka, on the other hand, will not take this team lightly. Yes, they are young. Yes, many players are playing for the country for the very first time. But that does not make the players any less lethal or skilled. In fact, the young players are likely to be passionate and aggressive from the word go.
India squad: Rohit Sharma(c), Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey, Dinesh Karthik, Deepak Hooda, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Vijay Shankar, Shardul Thakur, Jaydev Unadkat, Mohammed Siraj, Rishabh Pant Sri Lanka squad: Dinesh Chandimal(c), Upul Tharanga, Danushka Gunathilaka, Kusal Mendis, Dasun Shanaka, …
