Fantasy Kabaddi – Defending Strategies

India is a nation where passion for different sports runs in every individual. First, it was the era of cricket. Our ancestors would reminisce about the golden period of test cricket. Then came the fever of hockey and now is the turn of kabaddi games.

No one has really envisioned the kind of success kabaddi fantasy league is enjoying. It is overwhelming how the sports enthusiasts have taken interest to the game.

Kabaddi is a sport involving loads of struggle and intense play. Hence, fantasy kabaddi needs loads of strategies. Read them on and play the game at 11wickets.com

Two-man chains

A very common method of defense, immediate people hold their hands to form a chain and tries to trap the raider and recede back when the raider attacks.

Three-man chains

Usually executed with covers and the middle man, this is not that common but effective against some raiders as this prevents them from going too much inside to get points.

Lone warrior

This is a strategy used with everyone standing alone without holding hands, usually done in scenarios with fewer than 5 people present in the defending team. Very intense and provocative and can be really risky against a good raider. If you have great corners or covers, this move can be lethal.

Protecting the raider

If in the team you have one key raider, all the other players allow him to play in the middle and stand in formation ahead of the raider protecting him. This strategy is similar to the one in chess where you protect your King.

Advance defense

Baulk line advance, Bonus line advance

Another provocative strategy used when defense is under pressure not to let the raider take a point or make the raid legal by crossing the baulk line. A very risky move but if the raider is average, can work.

Bonus line advance is when the formation of defense stands in front of the bonus line trying to make it impossible for the raider to get a bonus point. This is fairly common strategy and can work well most of the times.

Sacrificial defense

Surrender point, Surrender raid

Two types of strategies depending on the situation, if the defender is the last man standing and the team wants the inevitable all out done fast and move on with the game, defender goes to the raider and surrenders. This is a surrender raid, where the raider need not sweat to get the points.

The second situation is more complicated; if the defending team is leading by more than 2 points and it is the last moments of the match, maybe the last raid, one defender stands in front of the whole defense formation and sacrifices himself and does not let the raider go past him and allow him to take multiple points. This is a very clever strategy and is not seen often.

Fantasy Kabaddi – All about Defending Positions

In the game of fantasy kabaddi, the raider has to prove his worth against a host of defenders from the opponent team. They have to play on the other half of the mat to score a touchpoint.

Defenders are all the kabaddi games players who are on their side of the mat, when the raider from the opponent team is raiding. Some of the players have special skills to defend their team from the raiding attacks. They pin down the raider after taking positions accordingly on the mat.

In todays post, we will focus and identify the different positions of the defenders on the mat. Read on the positions of the entire kabaddi fantasy game team on the mat, all the seven players. And join 11wickets.com to win loads of prizes:

Left and right corners

They cover the outermost position in the defense on the left and right-side corner. These are the most crucial position of defense as they have to initiate the tackle.

Left corner-in & right corner-in

The first immediate player next to either corner on the left and the right are the “in’s.” In a full defense of seven, the left raider usually takes the right-in position while the right raider takes the left-in position. Depending on the situation, the in’s sometimes interchange as the roles are highly versatile.

Right and left covers

They are the wall of the defense and occupy the central position when it comes to defense. Players in this position are usually on the bulkier side as they have to primarily stop the momentum of the raider in most tackles and have a lot of brute strength.

Center/middle

This is generally the position occupied by the third or do-or-die raider wherein he is relegated to the back-line, playing a secondary role in the defense. Often the raider weakest in defense or the raider who is main raider is subjugated to this deep role and will only take part in defending if necessary.
