Raiding is one of the most important aspects of Kabaddi. A raider enters the opposition half by crossing the middle line of the court, he then has to get a touch on any of the defenders in the enemy half and get back to his half. Raiders can enter the enemy half from either side, which makes them left or right raiders.
There are different moves to get a touch on the opponent including kick, toe touch, jump, dubki etc. Raiders can also make multiple touched on defenders to get bonus points, this requires raiders to be very talented and precise in their movements. Here are the top five raiders in the Pro Kabaddi who have the maximum raid points of all time.
