India rode battling half-centuries by KL Rahul and Virat Kohli to post 240 all out in exactly 50 overs against Australia in the final of the World Cup at the Narendra Modi Stadium on Sunday. The International Cricket Council announced an overall $10 million (approximately Rs 83 crore) prize money for the World Cup. The winner of the tournament will receive a prize purse of $4 million (approximately Rs 33 crore), while the runners-up will get $2 million (approximately 16 crore). The two losing semi-finalists, New Zealand and South Africa, will each receive $800,000 (Rs 6.5 crore approximately). The other six teams that failed to qualify for the knockouts will receive $100,000 each, and the winner of each group stage match will get an incentive of $40,000 (Rs 33 lakh approximately).
The prize money for the World Cup sets the precedent for the upcoming ICC Women's Cricket World Cup in 2025, with equal sums announced for both the men's and women's events. India and Australia will face off for the World Cup title in the final match.
