It was given to them by the then BCCI president Sharad Pawar. Along with the amount, Yuvraj got an additional one crore along with a Porsche sports car from Lalit Modi, the then BCCI vice-president.

Pawar also lauded Yuvraj for the incredible feat and had words of praises for the other team members. Even after 13 years, the game remains to be a memorable one for the players and fans.
