India Fantasy Kabaddi – Gujarat Fortune Giants Preview

The recently trending online fantasy kabaddi games have found a competitive team in Gujarat Fortune Giants. The team has building on strengthening their defence.

And their strong defence has led them to reach the previous two Indian kabaddi fantasy league final. Being the runners up of season 5 & season 6 consecutively, this time they started their matches on a confident note.

Gujarat based Fortune Giants is one of the four new teams playing since the 5th season in 2017. During both the earlier seasons, the Giants have marked the presence in the kabaddi games with utmost determination.

On paper, Gujarat Fortune Giants are a less experienced side. It also estimates to be one of their biggest threats in the past two seasons. However, the lack of experienced players also reduces the chances of injuries. This uplifts the team’s consistency in a three-month tournament like the Indian kabaddi game league.

No one could stop Patna Pirates from completing the hat-trick. 4 new teams were added to the league during this year. 12 teams were divided into two zones of six teams each. With three games each against the opponents from the same zone, one each against teams from the other zone, and one wild card inter-zone match, all 12 teams played 22 games in total.

Fantasy Kabaddi – Defensive Positions in Kabaddi

Kabaddi is a game played between two teams of seven players. This is where individuals take turns to chase and touch members of the opposing team without being captured by them. We have told the fans of online kabaddi games at 11wickets.com earlier about the history of this game.

Fantasy Kabaddi is a game relying upon an intricate transition between attack and defense. Teams put a huge weight on raiding the opposition steadily to confirm the pressure piled on them.

Likewise, defenses of fantasy kabaddi games work to keep raiders from effortlessly working up points. They are working in accord to not let the raiders to guess position with no trouble.

Focus and positioning are important to the defense of protecting the team. Look closer to know how defensive positions work in Indian fantasy kabaddi. Read on:

Position – Corners

The corners of a kabaddi team are the widest positions on the playing stadium, stretching the team on both sides. Each of the participating team deploys best defenders on the corner side. This is because it is the most influential position of the game. A game can be won or lost depending on how the corners of the team perform in a match!

The main duty of the corners is to start the tackles at the apt moment. This is because they are the main targets for the opposition’s raiders to score points from. If it is a right raider raiding from the opposite end, he/she will attack the left corner and vice versa in case the raider is raiding from the left side.

In the case of a right raider, the left corner of the team goes deep into his half. To be precise, it goes behind the bonus point line to make the raider come to him. This is to get a touch point while at the same time. The main duty of the right corner is to cover the raider’s track in case a block makes before he returns to his own half.

Position – Covers

The covers of the team normally invade the positions inside the Corners and Ins on both the sides of playing mat. They act as a support system to the chain comprised of Corners and Ins. Though, their foremost duty is to save their star raiders who adopt the safest position, which is the center from getting touched by an opponent. A lot of the team even use their cover defenders to take up raids to give much-needed rest to their best raiders. It is also to save them for do-or-die raids.

Position – Ins

The Ins of a kabaddi team usually comprises of the raiders, who create a chain with the corners and help them maintain their balance on the playing area. With the chain created, they help the chain contain the opponents’ raiders and also try to block the raiders in their tracks. It also forces the raider to go for the much tougher moves like the dubki or a jump to score touchpoints.

Fantasy Kabaddi – A Journey of Rise for Kabaddi Games

As the season of Kabaddi games is approaching, we know that the fans of 11wickets.com are curious to know where the roots for the sport lie. Kabaddi is primarily an Indian game and popular as Game of Masses. The game is very popular, simple and also the rules are easily understandable. However, strong evidence states that the game is 4,000 years old. But still very few people know about its origin.

India fantasy kabaddi is a simple and economical game. It does not require a huge playing area or any costly equipment. It is basically an outdoor sports player play on a clay court or a synthetic surface.

The sport originated in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu. Other forms of kabaddi fantasy game originated in northern parts of India. The modern kabaddi introduced in the Indian National Games at Calcutta in 1938.

Sundar Ram of India introduced and popularized the game in Japan during 1979. He was touring Japan on behalf of Asian Amateur Kabaddi Federation for two months to introduce the game. The first Asian Kabaddi Championship was held in 1980.

Different names of the game

Nowadays the HTT is known by different names. Fans call Hu-Tu-Tu in Western India, Chedugudu in Southern India, Kabaddi in Northern India and Ha-Do-Do in Eastern India. The duration of the game is 35 minutes with 5 minutes break in between to change the sides.

The two teams occupy opposite halves of a field and take turns sending a raider into the other half to win points by tackling members of the other team. The raider then attempts to return to his own team holding his breath and saying “Kabaddi” during the whole raid.

At the international team version of kabaddi, two teams each with seven members occupy opposed halves of a field of 10m by 8m (for women) and 11m by 13 m (for men) and each team has three extra players in reserve. Participants play the game with 20-minute halves and a five-minute break during which the teams exchange sides.

Teams take turn sending a raider to the opposite team where the goal is to tag members of the opposite team before returning to his own team. Tag members go out and sent off the field for the time being. Meanwhile, the defender must make a chain, by connecting hands. If the chain breaks down, a member of the defending team go off. The aim of the defender is to stop the raider from returning to his side before taking a breath.

The sports fantasy kabaddi can also be played in three different forms like Amar, Gemini and Sanjeevani. Let us discuss these forms in detail.

Amar

This form of kabaddi played based on points scored by both sides. The playfield has no particular measurements and nine to eleven players add up to each of the teams. The main advantage of this form of the game is that the cover players remain in the court throughout the match and are able to give their best performance.

Gemini

This form of kabaddi played with 9 players on either side. The main attribute of this form of kabaddi is that a player is putting out to remain out until all the team members are putting on. The team which is successful in putting out all the players of the opposite team secure a point.

Sanjeevani

This form is closest to the present game. In this, the players put out and re-energized. The team that puts out all the players on the opponent’s side scores four extra points. The winning team is the one that scores maximum points at the end of 40 minutes.
