  2. 2. Kho Kho is an Indian sport played by teams of twelve players who try to avoid being touched by the members of the opposing team, only nine players of the team enter the field
  3. 3. In Kho Kho one team sits or kneels in the middle of the court, in a row, with alternate members in the row facing opposite directions
  4. 4. The other team may sent two or three members. The motive of the sitting team is to "tag” the opponents.
  5. 5. The chasers can run only in one direction and cannot cut across the sitters (unlike the dodgers who can run randomly and in between the sitters).
  6. 6. They have to run around the entire row to reach other side. The other option is to pass the chasing job to another sitter whose back is facing you as you are running.
  7. 7. The chaser touches the sitter he wants (usually nearest to the target) and shouts "Kho” to signify the change of guard
  8. 8. Objective of a player in a game The objective is to tag all the opponents in the shortest time possible. If the other team takes longer, the former team wins.
