T20 World Cup Prize Money: The world got the new world champion of T20. England won the second title by defeating Pakistan (ENG vs PAK T20 World Cup Final) in the final of the T20 World Cup 2022 held in Melbourne. England got about 13 crore rupees as prize money as the winner. Know how much amount the runner-up Pakistan got as prize money.
New Delhi. Ben Stokes’ half-century after a brilliant bowling led by Sam Karen helped England beat Pakistan by five wickets in the thrilling final of the T20 World Cup 2022 to become champions for the second time. England won the first T20 World Cup title in 2010 in the West Indies under the captaincy of Paul Collingwood. England’s left-arm fast bowler Sam Karen and leg-spinner Adil Rashid put Pakistan under so much pressure that the rival team could manage only 137 for eight.
The England team had come under pressure in front of Pakistan’s amazing bowling, but after Shaheen Shah Afridi was out of the field with an injury, the course of the match changed. England became champions by scoring 138 for five in 19 overs with Stokes’s innings of 52 runs (five fours, one six) off 49 balls. Stokes also played an important role in making his team champion in the 2019 ODI World Cup. Pakistani captain Babar Azam’s wish to match his country’s great cricketer Imran Khan’s achievement (the 50-over World Cup winning team of 1992) could not be fulfilled on this ground.
England got Rs 13 crore
After winning their second T20 World Cup, England got the US $ 1.6 million i.e. $ 16 lakh (about Rs 13.05 crore) as the winner. Australia got the same amount of prize money after winning the T20 World Cup last year. At the same time, the players of the Pakistan team who missed the title also became rich. The Pak team got US $ 8 lakh (about Rs 6 crore) as the runner-up. Apart from this, the teams of New Zealand and India also reached the semi-finals. He also got 4 lakh dollars i.e. about 3-3 crore rupees as a reward.
