Kabaddi is a game that always keeps you on your toes; both as a player and as a viewer. With the introduction of the Pro Kabaddi League, the sport has developed a huge fan base not only in India but also all across the globe. Today, even people abroad are aware of the fact that a game called Kabaddi was created in India and is played at a grand scale like the Pro Kabaddi League. PKL introduced a lot of new rules to the game, that weren’t linked to the traditional game before. However, some have remained intact with the game since its beginning. One such rule is the ‘Super Raid’. Let us have a closer look at what a super raid is and also find out top 5 players with most super raids in PKL history.

Super Raid Rule

We are aware of the fact that in Kabaddi, a player enters into the opponent’s half and this process of the player coming into the opponent’s arena is called a raid and the player entering is called the raider. The raider gets the point if he touches one of the opponents and returns backs to his half successfully. One-touch ensures one point added to the raider’s team. However, if he/she decides not to touch any of the defenders and return safely, no point is shared, and this ends up being called an empty raid.

Duty of a Raider

But a play where a raider is successfully able to snatch 3 or more points successfully, it is known as a super raid. These need not be points only through touches. It can be combined with touches, bonus point, and if the defender of the opponent commits a mistake by going outside the court. Getting a super raid lifts the overall confidence of the team as your team member is successfully able to deceit 3 or more players with his skills, and it adds a lot of pressure on the opponent teams. Many matches have just changed their behaviour because of one super raid. A super raid as such is not a rule, but a term. To keep it in simple terms, it’s equivalent of getting a 4-wicket haul in T20 cricket.
