Pro Kabaddi League - 2019 will begin tomorrow. There will be two matches on the opening day, both will be played at Hyderabad's Gachibowli Stadium. First one will be between Telugu Titans and season 2 champion U Mumba. Defending champion Bengaluru Bulls will take on three-time winner Patna Pirates in the second contest.
Ahead of the seventh season, let’s understand the terms associated with the game.
If the opposition has six or more players on the mat, then the bonus line (the second line in the opponent’s half) becomes active. In such a case, if the foot of the raider lands over bonus line without cutting it, then the raiding team will receive a bonus (+1) point even if the raider is successfully tackled during the raid. Bonus points will not revive a player.
A technical point is credited to the team and not to any raider or defender, and it is awarded due to a following reasons:
- Coaching by a player/coach when a raid is active.
- If a player goes out of bounds before being in contact with an opponent during a raid.
If a raider gets three or more points (can be touch or bonus or technical points) for his team from a single raid then that raid is called a Super Raid.
If a team goes on two successive empty raids (raids fetching no points for either team), then the next raid is called a Do-Or-Die Raid. The raiding team must get a point during this raid, else the raider will be out even if he is not tackled.
If a raider gets ten raid points (touch and bonus points) in a single game, then it is called a Super 10.
If the defending team has three or lesser players on the mat, then with the successful tackle of a raider the team gets two points instead of one.
If a defender gets five tackle points (inclusive of super tackle points) in a single game, then it is called a High Five.
If a player (in most cases an all-rounder) gets both a Super 10 and a High Five in the same game, then the feat is called a Double.
