First Indian football team won Nehru Cup, then Indian Hockey Team won the Asia cup and then it was the turn of Indian cricket team, They won the 20-20 World cup and then Vishwanathan Anand became the World Chess champion. All these 4 big events happened in just in a span of almost one month. Isn’t it the CHAK DE INDIA effect?

August 29, 2007 – Football Nehru Cup, India never reached finals of Nehru cup before, and this time they won this title be defeating Syria by 1-0.

September 9, 2007 – Hockey Asia Cup, India started this tournament with a win of 1-0 on China. Later, India played at its best while thrashing Sri Lanka with 20-0, Thailand with 16-0. In final, they performed superbly and won the title by defeating Korea with 7-2. India ended the tournament with 57 goals and just 5 goals against them without a single defeat. Isn’t it unbelievable?

September 24, 2007 – Cricket 20-20 World Cup, I am a big fan of cricket but due to poor performance of India since last year, i lost interest in cricket and when India was out from ODI world cup 2007 in the first round, i just stopped the watching Indian cricket matches, i thought its very hard for Indian cricket team to come back. But the Indian cricket team proved me (and of course others also) wrong very soon. In 20-20 world cup, they were playing like champions, Sometimes luck also favored them and they WON the 20-20 world cup. They won this title by defeating Pakistan, South Africa, England and our world champion Australia.

September 30, 2007 – Vishwanathan Anand became the World Chess champion, after winning the global tournament in Mexico.

All this happened just after CHAK DE INDIA was released, I think that all the teams must have followed what SRK told in the movie.
“Play for India first, then for the team, if anything is still left then play for yourself”

I hope India will continue this Chak De India effect.
