8. Sachin Tendulkar as Kabir Khan from ‘Chak De India’
It was 2003 World Cup, India started with a loss. The team was dismayed and dejected. At this crucial moment the team wanted some motivation. The God of cricket, Sachin Tendulkar took the stand and gave an inspiring speech (like the one Kabir Khan gave in film ‘Chak De India’). The team was so motivated that they went on to win 8 matches and blazed into the finals. Though they lost to Australia in the finals, it was a comprehensive effort from Team India.
