Albie Morkel, the allrounder who has represented South Africa, Titans, Durham and Chennai Super Kings, is the first to play 100 Twenty20 matches. He reached the milestone in Chennai’s game against Rajasthan Royals in Ahmedabad.

David Hussey, who has played for Australia, Australia A, Nottinghamshire, Victoria and Kolkata Knight Riders, needs only four more caps during the IPL to join Morkel. With players increasingly plying their trade for Twenty20 teams across continents, expect several more to join them soon.

    Players like Mccullum, symonds, dilshan will join this list soon as they play for 4 different franchise.. BCCI has put restrictions to our contracted players not to participate any other county cricket due to hectic international schedules.

    its not about the number of t20s its about the achievements of the players.albie and david are very good t20 player but sachin is different.@...sathiya i think your thougts about tendulkars not playing wc is a bit wrong.that man ha represented his country for 2 decades.now he is making the way for youngmen to do the same.sachin is an icon and he have alot of wealth.i dont think he will not do anything that teaches youngmen selfishness

    Even when the content is about Albie Morkel, Sachin comes. Grow up Sachin fans.

    Sachin needs some rest. He is not 24 yr old to play each and every game. Moreover he is very very important for the world cup next year. If he played continously if he gets injuired. Then tata bye bye world cup once again.

    Albie is decent player and hope more people will join him soon as T20 is the most popluar format of cricket presently. In future more players are expected to leave long format of the game to stay fit for T20's to earn more money. ;-) I think South African and English players will maximum number of caps as they play huge number of games in whole year.

    I think it's amazing how people always manage to turn any cricket discussion into something about Sachin. There are other players to appreciate...

    Guys! rather then over-burdening Sachin T by playing him for the T20 WC, lets preserve him well for the real WC, the 2011 WC for next year. T20 cricket is not real cricket and it doesn't deserve legends like Sachin T to play in the WC.

    sachin is in the best touch in his carrier.. if sachin played 20-20 wc than no doubt india become champion... 2011 wc is mine...

    yup it is a real pleasure to watch the ipl but the problem is that they do not play like this in the world cup.
