Dubai, May 26
The winners of next month’s World Test Championship Final between India and Australia at The Oval will take home USD 1.6 million in prize money, while runners-up will get richer by USD 8,00,000, the ICC announced here on Friday.
The championship decider will be played at The Oval, London, from June 7-11 with June 12 as the reserve day.
The tournament prize money is the same as that for the inaugural World Test Championship Final in 2019-21 -- a total purse of USD 3.8 million besides the WTC Mace.
The Kane Williamson-led New Zealand side was rewarded with USD 1.6 million besides the glittering Mace in Southampton two years ago, courtesy an eight-wicket win over India in the six-day final.
All nine teams will get a share in the USD 3.8 million purse with South Africa earning USD 4,50,000 for finishing third in the WTC 2021-23 standings.
England, who made a late surge and finished their campaign in fourth spot, will bag USD 3,50,000.
Sri Lanka, who were among the top teams in the race for a spot in the decider during the epic finale, finished fifth to earn USD 200,000.
The remaining teams New Zealand (No.6), Pakistan (No.7), West Indies (No.8), and Bangladesh (No.9) will be rewarded with a sum of USD 1,00,000 each.
