Most of us have certainly tried our hand at the game at some point in our lives, but the addition of a few innovative transformations at fantasy kabaddi league has only raised the bar and made this unique, high impact sport even more electrifying.
With the start of the online kabaddi games at 11wickets.com, it’s a great time to refresh our minds with the terms used in the game
The continuous clear sounding recitation aloud of the approve word ‘Kabaddi’ within the course of one respiration is cant.
One who enters the court of the opponent with the cant is a raider. The raider must begin his cant before he touches the opponent’s court.
ANTI-RAIDER OR ANTI
Every player of the party in whose court the raid has been made, is an anti-raider or anti.
When the raider enters the court of the opponent with cant, it is a raid.
When the raider crosses the baulk line of the defending team at least once during the course of a raid and reaches his court with cant, it is a successful raid.
When a raider touches an anti or an anti-touches a raider, the struggle begins.
LOSING THE CANT
To stop the continuous and clear sounding chant of the word ‘Kabaddi’ or to take a breath during a cant is known as losing the cant. A cant must be started and continued within one and the same respiration.
TO PUT OUT AN ANTI
If a raider touches an anti without the breach of the rules of play or if any part of the body an anti-touches any part of the body of the raider and then the raider touches his court with the cant, the anti is said to be put out.
TO HOLD A RAIDER
If the anti’s or anti hold without breach of rules of play and keep the raider in their court and do not allow him to reach his court until he loses his cant, it is known as holding the raider.
TO REACH COURT SAFELY
