Highlights of 38th All India Men Kabaddi Championship 2021
Kabaddi is a contact team sport. Played between two teams of seven players, the objective of the game is for a single player on offence, referred to as a «raider», to run into the opposing team’s half of a court, tag out as many of their defenders as possible, and return to their own half of the court, all without being tackled by the defenders, and in a single breath. Points are scored for each player tagged by the raider, while the opposing team earns a point for stopping the raider. Players are taken out of the game if they are tagged or tackled, but are brought back in for each point scored by their team from a tag or tackle.
ONGC, Sonepat won the title of 38th All India Mens Kabddi Championship organised by Sahyog Kreeda Mandal, Gotegaon, Madhya Pradesh. ONGC, Sonepat beat Airforce, Delhi in their final battle in the tournament by 38-24 and lift the title. Meetu’s marvellous performance in both raiding and defence was superb, where as Naveen Kumar who got injured during the match, couldn’t pull out his magic.
