Cricket News: WTC Final prize money: How much will the winner get? | ICC announces prize money for World Test Championship 2023

The International Cricket Council (ICC), on Friday, May 26th, took to their website and social media accounts to announce the prize money for teams who participated in the World Test Championship cycle of 2021-2023. 

In the introductory 2019-2021 cycle of the World Test Championship, a total purse of $3.8 million was shared between the nine teams. This time around, the pot has remained the same.

WTC prize money for finalists & remaining seven teams

Australia and India, who finished first and second respectively in this cycle of the WTC, will be competing against each other in the WTC final next month. The all-important final is set to take place June 7 onwards at The Oval, London. Like the inaugural edition, the winner is set to receive a staggering prize money sum of $1.6 million. The runners-up would receive the exact half of what the winners would, a still impressive $800,000.

The remaining $1.4 million will be divided amongst the remaining seven teams.

South Africa, who finished third, will be rewarded with $450,000. England, who whitewashed Pakistan in a three-Test series away from home, will be taking home $350,000 after they finished in fourth place.

Sri Lanka would feel they missed out on a massive opportunity to make it to the final. However, they fought extremely hard and contested in what was a last ball thriller, and arguably one of the greatest Test matches ever, against New Zealand. They will bag $200,000 for finishing fifth.

The bottom four teams, New Zealand, Pakistan, West Indies and Bangladesh, will earn $100,000 each for their valiant efforts throughout the cycle.

With the 2023 edition of the Indian Premier League coming to an end this Sunday, all eyes would then be on the ICC World Test Championship Final between the two giants, Australia and India. Both the teams have a lot to play for, and they will be playing for more than just the prize money. Prestige and pride on the line, and both the teams would be looking to win the reputable and grand World Test Championship mace.
