England will collect a massive $US 1.6 million for defeating Pakistan and winning the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup final on Sunday in Melbourne. The spectacular T20 tournament concluded at the MCG over the weekend, and the total prize fund of $5.6 million has now been distributed among the teams.

While Jos Buttler’s winning squad will get the most money, all 16 teams will be compensated for their efforts in Australia. Runners-up Pakistan will get precisely half of what England received ($800,000), while the two losing semi-finalists, India and New Zealand, will each receive $400,000 in prize money.

The eight teams who were eliminated in the Super 12 stage will each get $70,000 in prize money. A win in each of the 30 games in the Super 12 phase is worth $40,000 to each side, as it was last year at the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021. The four teams eliminated in the first round – UAE, Scotland, Namibia, and West Indies – will each get $40,000, but each team will also receive an extra $40,000 for each win they obtained during the First Round.
