Fantasy Kabaddi Rules

Kabaddi is a contact team sport that is played between two teams of 7 players (playing in different kabaddi kits). One of the basic rules of kabaddi is for an offense player, referred to as a "raider," to go into the opposing team's half, touch out as many of their defenders as possible, and return to their own half in a single breath. Points are scored for each player touched by the raider, while the opposing team earns points for stopping the raider.
