The Indian team, which excelled in the group stage of the T20 World Cup, lost badly in the semifinals. Team India’s stars Kohli and Surya kumar Yadav performed brilliantly in this tournament. However, they could not give the trophy to the Indian team. A weak bowling unit and consecutive failures by the openers hurt Team India.
Do you know how much prize money the Indian team gets in the group stage and loses in the semis? Literally 4 lakh dollars. According to our calculations, it is only Rs. 3.22 crores. Kiwis who lost in the semifinals will also get the same amount. In addition to this, for each victory achieved by these teams in the group stage, they will receive an additional 40 thousand dollars (over Rs. 32 lakhs). The Indian team won four in the group stage. This means that apart from the semis prize money, an additional cash prize of over Rs.1.2 crores will be available.
If we look at the prize money calculations for the other teams… the winning team of this tournament will receive 1.6 million dollars. If we look at the same calculations, it is about Rs.13 crores. The runner-up team will get half of it. Apart from this amount, these teams will also get a cash prize of over Rs.32 lakh for each win in the group stage.
Each team that reaches the Super-12 stage will get a cash prize of 70 thousand dollars (over Rs. 56 lakhs). Apart from these, as mentioned above, an additional Rs.32 lakh will be given for each success achieved in this stage. It means that teams like Ireland, Zimbabwe and Netherlands will get prize money in addition to their achievements. Afghanistan, who went home without a single win in the Super-12 stage, will also get a prize of Rs 56 lakh. Earlier, Rs.32 lakhs will be given to the teams that participated in Round-1. The same amount is also given for each victory achieved by the respective teams in this phase.
