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.

From all of us Fans to Players & Officials: Please don't treat us with kid gloves

As any fan will tell you, we not just love, but understand the sport and our teams like no one else. And that’s also why they keep bankrolling the big fat salaries of the players, the profits of the clubs and the boondoggle of officials. The recently concluded test match raised, in my mind, three instances where the thought process seems to be – it is OK for us to handle it, but it is too hot for fans . Common, now, please don’t treat us with kid gloves. One: The first one, inevitably, is about the DRS and taking the dugouts inputs in it. The rules are clear – the decision to ask for a decision review stays with the players on the field. Within a few seconds of the umpires’ decision, the batting team can dispute an out decision or the bowling team can dispute a not-out decision, without consulting with anyone outside the playing field. The controversy of Smith’s ‘brain-fade’ and Kohli’s allegations have played out ad nauseam on TV and cyberspace, so I will spare you that

Need for co-ed sports

Now, this is hardly a feminist piece. I am not here to tell you that women can do anything that men can and better too. One, you know it too. Two, this is hardly about women. I am not here to praise women and demand better rights. I am talking about the possibility that the entire field of sports can take a whole new meaning if gender is not made the criterion. So this is how the idea for the blog started. The Women’s Indian Cricket Team performed really well at the world cup this year. Mithali Raj praised her team for their hard work, persistence, and passion for the game. She also added that there should be an IPL tournament in the country for the women’s team now. Raj believes that the team’s fantastic game has increased the fan following for the women’s team as well and that they have earned their place here. While I am honestly not sure about an IPL tournament for women, it did get me thinking. Why not mixed sports? Now that girls play almost all the games that the guys do, w

Editor’s Pick: England Vs Australia

Group A. Wide Open. With Bangladesh having won the match, Australia and New Zealand have been dumped to the bottom two. This adds pressure to the match today. A do-or-die clash always has its charm. Coming back to us fans, while the men hope to do a good job on the field, we need to pick a good lineup for our dream team. Let’s get on with it. England first. England is on top with four points from two wins, yes. But there is no need to slack and take it easy. They would want their best men in front. 77% have added Alex Hales to their lineup. With a salary of 8, I’d want him on my team too. But then, that’s just me. Jason Roy is under pressure to perform, so he will want to put on a good show. I might risk him as well. Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler, still fresh from their IPL tournaments are pretty good bets. Joe Root is a must, along with Morgan of course. The Captain. Now, the bowlers. Adil Rashid, Liam Plunkett and Jake Ball should be in. Australia Star
