Xtra Time Web Desk: The winner of the ICC World Test Championship final between India and Australia will win $1.6 million, while the runner-up will pocket $800,000. The championship decider will be played at The Oval, London, from June 7-11, with June 12 being the reserve day.
The tournament’s prize money is the same as the tournament’s inaugural edition, the 2019-21 ICC World Test Championship, a total purse of $3.8 million.
The Kane Williamson-led New Zealand side was rewarded with $1.6m on top of the brilliant Mace at Southampton two years ago, courtesy of an eight-wicket win over India in the six-day final.
The nine entrants of the 2021-23 ICC World Test Championship will get a share of the $3.8 million purse. South Africa earned $450,000 by finishing third in the 2021-23 ICC World Test Championship standings.
England, who made a comeback late in the two-year cycle with an aggressive style of play, finished fourth in the table, with a bounty of $350,000.
Sri Lanka, who were vying for a place in the final before their series loss in New Zealand, dropped to fifth place. His prize money is $200,000.
Sixth-placed New Zealand, seventh-placed Pakistan, eighth-placed West Indies and ninth-placed Bangladesh will receive $100,000 each.
