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.

Fan Data Analytics: Key to drive sports company growth

Over the last several years, the buzz word in business and IT circles has been "big-data" and analytics. Many many articles and write-ups talk about them so I won't go into the details. You could get enough to last a lifetime with just the first few results of a Google search of these terms. But do you really know how it applies, specifically to a sports company?

For long, sports franchises have been one of the biggest users of analytics. Before this was a buzz word, coaches and managers have relied up numbers and finding patterns in them to drive on-field performance. Indeed, the major leagues of the world have relied on performance analytics for everything from scouting for talent to calling the action on the field of play.

But that never transcended to the off-field, more mundane but equally important task of managing the sports business. As more and more options come up vying for the fan's attention - live events, travel, other sports, TV, the Internet - the war…

Editor's Pick: England - South Africa (TEST)

I have been watching cricket for a while now. When it comes to the international matches, my instinct is always to pick the man who has been around a while. For me, experience almost always takes preference. There have been exceptions of course. But today is not that day.
England and South Africa met for a three match T-20 and are now set to face each other for the test series. Having met so recently, they are fairly familiar with each other and will be prepared.
Philander is declared fit to play for SA. Rabada and Morkel have my vote. Dean Elgar will captain if Du Plessis misses the first match ( personal reasons).
England - Hales and Roy will be depended upon. Broad believes he is fit for the match. Joe Root wears the captain’s cap. And he brings in Gary Ballance. England might bring in two spinners along with three fast bowlers for their attack.
This is my lineup for the first test match.
