Wow, barring injury that would be some feat.

He now has the IPL out of the way, and is set to play in what would be his fifth World Cup. That's every World Cup held since his ODI debut in September 1999.

"Never really considered thinking about it but time does fly quickly," Gayle said. "I could never dream of playing so many World Cups but it has happened. It shows consistency in the career. That keeps you going and earn a lot of praise. Hard work in the last couple of has years paid off. People want to see you more and you are trying to deliver as much as possible."

Nice going bro, hope you leave on a high.

I guess the likes of Lara, Marshall, Ambrose & Walsh were not great players then, because I so not recall any of those winning a World Cup big grin big grin

There have been a ton of great players over the years in TEAM sports who have never sniffed a championship.
