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.

Fantasy Sports in India - Growth and Future

Not Just Yet Another Western Import
Fantasy sports is already a huge phenomenon world over, particularly in the Western world, and is only growing. And an ecosystem is developing around it – from sports experts to technology providers to ordinary fans turned pundits. Industry estimates peg the overall market for Fantasy Sports in the US alone to be $4 Billion annually[1] and grew at a rate of 8.5%[2] annually between 2011-2016.

Fantasy Sports in India has picked up significantly over the past few years, coinciding with the rise of franchise sports, particularly cricket and IPL. There are a number of providers that have launched their fantasy sports platforms and in many instances, more or less mimicked the offerings of their Western counterparts. These organisations have been claiming steady growth to their user base and winnings in the last two-three years, but somehow their numbers haven’t y…
