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.
The Indian Kabaddi team that won the world cup in 2016 had the following players on their 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

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 (ODI Finals): Bangladesh - Sri Lanka

The finals are finally here. Bangladesh meets Sri Lanka leaving Zimbabwe out. You might think that being home series for Bangladesh, it is really no big deal. But it really is not so. Sri Lanka lost home series. Now Australia is facing severe defeat by England. There is no such thing that it is normal for the home team to win anymore. Plus I would really like to appreciate Bangladesh for the way they are making into the big league of cricket today. If you look at the points table, you will see that Bangladesh won three out of four matches. Their points - 15 - are almost four times the score of Zimbabwe. Sri Lanka, with 9 points, made it to the finals. The last match saw Sri Lanka Beat Bangladesh. The only match that the home team ever lost. Makes you wonder if Bangladesh peaked a tad too early, doesn’t it? It was a comprehensive win for Sri Lanka. Bangladesh were 82 all out in 24 overs. Sri Lanka hit the target in less than 12 overs and won by ten wickets. It was really a o
