The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Friday (26) announced the prize money for the World Test Championship (WTC) 2021-23 cycle.

According to an official release, the nine teams that took part in the tournament will share an amount of $3.8 million among them, the same amount which was given in the previous cycle (2019-21) when New Zealand emerged as the champions beating India in the final.

India have made the final once again and this time, they will take on Australia in the final to be played at The Oval between June 7 and 11. The winners will take home $1.6 million while the runners-up will get $800,000.

“There is no change in the tournament prize money, which remains the same as that for the inaugural edition of the championship (2019-21) with a total purse of $3.8 million. Kane Williamson’s New Zealand were rewarded with $1.6 million in Southampton in 2021 after they sealed an eight-wicket win over India in the rain-marred six-day WTC final,” the ICC said.

South Africa will pocket $450,000 for finishing third in the ICC WTC 2021-23 rankings. England, who finished fourth after a late surge, will get $350,000.

Sri Lanka, who once looked favourites to make the final but were eventually pipped by India, finished fifth and will take home $200,000.

The remaining four teams — New Zealand (No.6), Pakistan (No.7), West Indies (No.8) and Bangladesh (No.9) will get $100,000 each.
