ICC announces prize money for T20I WC teams


International Cricket Council (ICC) on Friday announced prize money awards for teams at the upcoming Twenty20 World Cup in Australia.
According to ICC, the winning side at the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 in Melbourne on November 13 would receive prize money of $1.6 million, with the runners-up guaranteed half the amount.
Losing semi-finalists will each get $400,000 from the $5.6 million total prize pool. The eight teams who exit at the Super 12 stage will receive $70,000 each. Like last year at the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021, a win in each of the 30 games in the Super 12 phase will be worth $40,000.
The eight teams that made it directly to the Super 12 phase are Afghanistan, Australia, Bangladesh, England, India, New Zealand, Pakistan and South Africa.
The other eight teams – Namibia, Sri Lanka, Netherlands, UAE in Group A and West Indies, Scotland, Ireland and Zimbabwe in Group B – are split into two groups of four and will play the first round.
For any win in the first round, prize money of $40,000 will be awarded, with the 12 matches amounting to $480,000.
The four teams knocked out in the first round will get $40,000 each.
