In the Men’s Kabaddi competition, 11 teams will play. The teams are going to split into two groups, each with six and five teams. The groupings have not yet been made public.

Nine teams in all will compete in the women’s event. Here, the teams will be split into two groups, each with five and four teams, respectively.

There are 12 players on the men’s squad as a whole. Superstar raiders Naveen Kumar, Pawan Sehrawat, and Arjun Deshwal are on the team. Meanwhile, the seasoned Nitesh Kumar, Parvesh Bhainswal, Surjeet Singh, and Vishal Bhardwaj will serve as the defense’s captain.
