Kabaddi is the national game of Bangladesh, kabaddi is played by two teams of 12 players each on a 12.50 metre by 10 metre rectangular court in which a player, dashes into the opponent team's area, touches some player(s) and wrestles out to come back home safely without releasing his breath and thereby scores point for his team. The team consists of 12 players but only seven player plays in the court and the rest stay out of court as extras.
While intruding into the opponents' area the player clearly and audibly repeats the word 'kabaddi' without break and without releasing the breath. The time for the match comprises two halves of 20 minutes each and 5 minutes break in between.
A team earns one point by throwing out each one player of the opposite side. Two extra points are added as bonus when all players of the opponent party are out. The team that earns the greater number of points in the stipulated time wins the game.
