During the tournament, he became the first batsman in World Cup history to score five centuries in a single edition.The number of runs scored by Rohit though was still not enough to break Sachin Tendulkar’s World Cup record for the most runs scored by a batsman in a single edition after he got out for 1 in the first semi-final against New Zealand on Wednesday.Rohit needed just 27 runs to overhaul Tendulkar’s tally of 673 runs before the match against New Zealand but the Hitman’s rare failure in that match meant the record will stand for at least four more years before somebody else has a go at it in the next World Cup in 2023.This is the third time an Indian batsman has ended up as the highest run-scorer in World Cup after Tendulkar, who managed to top the run charts in 1996 and 2003.Rohit’s tally of 648 is the third highest by a batsman in a single edition after Tendulkar (673) and former Australia opener Matthew Hayden, who had amassed 659 runs in the 2007 World Cup which they ultimately went on to win in the West Indies.Australia opener David Warner ended up one run short of Rohit’s tally with 647 in 10 matches at 71.88 with three hundreds and three fifties. Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan was third on the list with 606 runs in 8 games at 86.57 with two centuries and five fifties.advertisementEngland’s Joe Root and New Zealand captain Kane Williamson were the only two batsmen who had a realistic chance of overhauling Rohit’s tally but they both got out cheaply on Sunday.Root, who needed exactly 100 runs in the final to become the leading run-scorer, ended up with 556 runs in 11 games at 68.62 with two hundreds and three half-centuries.Williamson, on the other hand, amassed 578 runs in 10 matches at 96.33 including two centuries and two fifties. Williamson got out for 30 in the final, falling to Liam Plunkett in the 23rd over, thus, breaking the record for the most number of runs scored by a captain in a single edition of the tournament.Williamson broke former Sri Lankan captain Mahela Jayawardene’s record of 548 runs scored during the 2007 World Cup. Williamson and Jayawardene are followed by Ricky Ponting (539 runs in 2007), Aaron Finch (507 runs 2019) and AB de Villiers (482 runs in 2015).Also Read | Make some noise: Fans disappointed with dull crowd in World Cup finalAlso Read | Kane Williamson breaks Mahela Jayawardene’s 12-year-old World Cup recordFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

As abuse allegations heat up R Kelly removes post on Sri Lanka

However today the singer had deleted the announcement from his social media accounts. The singer took to social media to announce that he will be on tour in Australia, New Zealand and Sri Lanka. Further details were not given. Controversial singer R. Kelly, who is facing multiple abuse allegations, has removed a post published on social media that he will be in Sri Lanka soon.The post was published two days ago on his official social media accounts. The announcement came weeks after Surviving R. Kelly aired featuring Kelly’s accusers and industry insiders detailing allegations against the singer that included physical, emotional and sexual abuse against women and underage girls.In response to the show, which gave rise to the #MuteRKelly campaign, a number of artists and former collaborators spoke out against Kelly, with Lady Gaga, Celine Dion, Chance the Rapper, Jennifer Hudson and more either pulling their collaborations with Kelly from streaming services or expressing their regret for working with him. The following year, Kelly would court notoriety offstage by producing Aaliyah’s debut album “Age Ain’t Nothing but a Number” amid a flurry of speculation that the pair had wed despite Aaliyah apparently being underage – the first of many controversial incidents in Kelly’s career. In 1996, he had arguably his biggest success to date with the anthemic “I Believe I Can Fly” from the movie “Space Jam”; it scooped him three Grammy Awards and remains his signature song. (Colombo Gazette)By Easwaran Rutnam He’s demonstrated an impressive penchant for being able to reinvent himself over the years; his early successes in the first part of the nineties saw him make a name for himself with his debut solo record, “12 Play”, and especially the smash hit single “Bump ‘N Grind”, which spent twelve weeks at the top of the charts in his native U.S in 1993. Additionally, Sony BMG — the parent company of Kelly’s record label, RCA Records — parted ways with the Grammy winner in the wake of the docuseries. Kelly’s music had also reportedly been banned from two Dallas-area radio stations, while some community organizers had begun to call on iHeartRadio and Radio One to ban his music from their playlists. The singer has also been banned from Philadelphia by its city council.Kelly was first arrested in 2002 for his alleged involvement in a child pornography tape. Surviving R. Kelly — which averaged 2.1 million viewers, a significant number for Lifetime — explored that scandal in particular, along with the stories and allegations from a number of women, including Kelly’s ex-wife Andrea Lee, former underage partner Lizzette Martinez and former backup singer Jovante Cunningham.Over the course of a twenty-five year career that’s been marked by controversy off stage, Kelly has amassed a slew of hit records, awards and accolades – not to mention huge personal worth. read more
