If Team India becomes the champion, then captain Virat Kohli will again take up the Test mess. Along with this, Rs 11.71 crore will also be available.
The final match of the World Test Championship is to be played between India and New Zealand from June 18 to 22. The International Cricket Council (ICC) has announced on Sunday that the team that becomes the champion will get a prize money of $ 1.6 million (about Rs 11.71 crore). At the same time, the team that loses in the final will be given $ 8 lakh (about 5.85 rupees). The champion team will get the prize money as well as the Test Championship mace.
If the match is drawn, the amount will be divided equally.
The ICC has said that if the match remains a draw or the game is not possible due to rain, then 12-12 lakh dollars (Rs 8.78-8.78 crore) will be given to both the teams. The ICC said that for the first time in this format the world champion team will come out. This will in a way be the best team in Tests at the moment.
Now only the test champion will get the test mace
The ICC has also made it clear that from now onwards, the Test Championship mess will only go to the team that wins the final match of the Test Championship. Earlier it was given every year to the number-1 team in the ranking. If the final match ends in a draw, then both the teams will share this mess till they are joint winners.
England got Rs 29.27 crore for winning the ODI World Cup in 2019.
The winner of the ODI World Cup was met
The prize money of ICC Test Championship is less than the prize money of ODI World in 2019. The winning England team in 2019 got $ 4 million (Rs 29.27 crore as of today). At the same time, the runner-up team got $ 2 million (about Rs 14.63 crore). The World Champion team of T20 2016 will be given 3.5 million dollars (about Rs 25.61 crore).
Australia will get Rs 3.29 crore
The ICC said that Australia’s team, which finished third in the Test Championship race, will be given $ 4.5 lakh (about Rs 3.29 crore). Fourth-placed England will be given $ 3.5 million (about Rs 2.56 crore) and fifth-placed Pakistan will be given $ 2 lakh (about Rs 1.46 crore). The other teams that are part of the Test Championship, West Indies, South Africa and Sri Lanka will be given $1 lakh each (about Rs 73 lakh).
