He is a game played between two teams. It is played by the players of the two different teams that are against each other. Each team has 7 players and one team tries to touch the players present on the other side that is the different team players to get Technical points.

Meanwhile, the players of the Opposing Team try to prevent the raider from coming back to its own team by opposing the raider. The Raider is supposed to touch as many players as possible in the opposition team in one go. The same number of points goes to the raider team depending on the number of players he has been in contact with.

If the opposition team manages to stop the raider then the raider is considered disqualified. The team stopping the raider gets a point in this case. The team gets a point when the raider is prevented from entering their court. In this way, players play against each other.

The team with the most points is considered as winners when all the players in a particular team are disqualified whereas the Opposing team is still left with its players. That team is declared victorious according to the points. He consists of 12 players. Out of which seven players are on the court and 5 are kept as reserved. A line is drawn in the middle of the court which divides the two teams into two separate parts.

Duration of the game

The game is usually played in two Halves of 20:20 Min ( with a five-minute break between halves ). After every 20Min, the team changes its court. For this, both teams get a break of 5 minutes. Each team consists of 5 to 6 catchers and four to five raiders respectively.

The coach captain of the International Kabaddi team can take time out in between when the Kabaddi match is played in which he can discuss tactics to play between the players and the captain. This break is about 2 minutes. The match is organized according to the weightage of the players.

Technical rules:

According to the Rules of Kabaddi, some decisions are also given. Such as during a knockout semi-final Kabaddi match of kabaddi if the raider challenges the touch, the umpire can change that decision based on its TV response similar to the third umpire strategy in cricket. The maximum time for counseling is 20 seconds. Consultation has to be decided within 20 seconds.

Bonus Line:

The bonus line feature is activated inside Kabaddi when 6 players remain inside the court in the rescue team while the raider goes to that team and crosses the bonus line thus again falling into his court after he has touched them all. Here, the raider gets a Technical point.

Super tackle

Inside Rules, if three players of the rescue team managed to catch the raider then the raider is considered as out. So, it is called Super Tackle. In this, the team with the current rescue player gets 2 points.

Kabaddi lobby rules
