Types of Raids
What is a successful raid?
In Kabaddi, a successful raid is considered when a player runs to the opponent’s court and tags one or more players of the opponent team. If your chosen player successfully manages to tag at least one opponent, you are awarded 8 points.
The difference between Super Raid and Super 10
A player manages a “Super Raid” when he manages to get three or more points in the opponent’s court. A “Super 10”, on the other hand, is when a raider scores 10 or more raid points in a single game.
You will get 4 points in addition to the 8 points of a successful raid. 4 more fantasy points are awarded if your player manages a Super 10.
A raider gets a bonus point in Kabaddi when he manages to reach the bonus line drawn deep into the opponent’s court. In fantasy kabaddi, a user is awarded 2 fantasy points for the same. Hence, in total, a fantasy kabaddi user can get a maximum of 16 points in raids from a single player.
Types of Tackles
What is a successful tackle?
A successful tackle in kabaddi is when your team successfully stops a raider of the opposition from escaping back to their court. In fantasy kabaddi, a user is awarded 20 points if a chosen player from their fantasy team manages a successful tackle.
The difference between Super Tackle and High Five
A “Super Tackle” is when your team is down to three defenders or less and still manages to successfully tackle a raider of the opponent team. In Kabaddi, a team gets a bonus point for a super tackle in addition to the tackle point as well as if the player manages to induce an all-out on the opposition. In fantasy kabaddi, a user is awarded 8 points for the same.
A High Five, on the other hand, is when a single player of the team manages to get 5 or more tackle points. In such a case, a fantasy team is awarded 10 points.
Hence, in total, a fantasy kabaddi user can win up to 28 tackle points.
Like the plethora of points in offer for raids and tackles, fantasy kabaddi users also walk a thin rope owing to the number of penalty points on offer.
- Unsuccessful Raid: In the scenario where a raider goes to the opponent’s court and returns without tagging any opposition player, a fantasy kabaddi user gets a two-point deduction.
- Unsuccessful Tackle: Like an unsuccessful raid, an unsuccessful tackle is when your team fails to stop an opposition’s raider from returning to their half after getting touched by him. A fantasy kabaddi user gets a -1 for such a case.
- Team Gets All Out: In Kabaddi, there are negative points given when a team gets all out by the opposition. In fantasy kabaddi, a user will be penalized with – 4. Note that only his picked players in the starting seven will see this deduction.
- Green Card: A green card is shown as an official warning for a player committing a minor offence that does not warrant a furthermore serious sanction. A fantasy kabaddi user will see -2 if his chosen player is shown a green card.
- Yellow Card: A yellow card is shown to a player to issue a 2-minute suspension from the game. A yellow card will see a team’s opposition getting 1 technical point. In fantasy kabaddi, a user will get a -4 if his chosen player sees a yellow card.
- Red Card: A red card is the highest level of punishment in kabaddi. A player seeing a red card will remain suspended for the rest of the match and his team won’t be able to replace him throughout the match. A technical point is awarded to the opposition in this case as well. If a fantasy kabaddi user has a player seeing a red card, the fantasy team will see a deduction of 6 points.
Captain & Vice-Captain: As is the case with most other fantasy sports, your chosen captain and vice-captain are rewarded with 2x and 1.5x boosts, respectively, on their individual points.
Starting 7: A fantasy kabaddi user will be allotted 8 points if his chosen player starts in the starting 7 of the real game.
Substitute appearances: If the chosen player from the fantasy kabaddi team doesn’t make it to the starting 7 but comes off the bench, then the fantasy kabaddi team owner will get 2 points.
Inducing All Out: If a player from your fantasy team, who was part of the starting 7, manages to induce an all-out of the opposition, a fantasy kabaddi team owner will get 8 points.
