WC 2023: team india take home millions in prize money
India is set to pocket a substantial US$2 million from the ICC as recognition for their second-place finish in the World Cup 2023, with added incentives for their triumphs in the group stage.
Australia's victory, clinching their record-extending sixth World Cup title, left India grappling with shattered pieces, a stark contrast to their meticulously woven performance throughout the tournament.
India's share of the ICC prize money amounts to US$2 million for their runners-up finish in the World Cup 2023, their only defeat incurred in the final against a formidable Australian side.
The ICC's innovative approach of awarding teams for each victory in the group stage, at US$40,000 per win, added an extra US$360,000 to India's earnings due to their flawless group stage performance.
Team India's total earnings in this World Cup reached US$2,360,000, prompting contemplation on the value of exchanging it all for Australia's World Cup trophy.
Australia's triumph in the World Cup 2023, marked by a convincing six-wicket victory over India, translated not only into a trophy and winners' medal but also a substantial financial reward.
The Pat Cummins-led team received a noteworthy US$4 million for their triumph, complemented by an additional US$280,000 for securing seven victories in the group stage. In total, Australia's earnings in the World Cup 2023 reached US$4,280,000.
Other standout earners included semi-finalists New Zealand and South Africa, each receiving US$800,000 for reaching the semi-finals. South Africa's additional victories in the group stage secured them an extra US$280,000, while the Kiwis, with five wins, earned US$200,000.
