The Australian cricket team experienced unbridled joy on 14th November 2021, as Aaron Finch and his men lifted their first T20 World Cup trophy, defeating the New Zealand side with 8 wickets to spare in the final of the tournament.

Batting first, New Zealand posted a challenging total of 172/4 on the board, with skipper Kane Williamson scoring a masterly 85 off just 48 deliveries. In reply, the Aussies cantered past the target with 7 balls in the kitty and emerged victorious on the biggest stage in T20I cricket.

So, how much will both New Zealand and Australia get as prize money? First up, the winner of the 2021 T20 World Cup, Australia, will receive a sum of INR 11.9 Crores for winning the tournament. Apart from that, the kangaroos will also receive an additional sum of INR 1.2 Crores for posting 4 wins in the Super 12 Stages of the tournament (INR 30 Lakhs for each Super 12 win). So, Australia will get richer by INR 13.1 Crores.

On the other hand, the runners-up of the competition, New Zealand are slated to receive INR 5.95 Crores. Additionally, the Kiwis will also receive a sum of INR 1.2 Crores for emerging triumphant in 4 out of their 5 Super 12 encounters.
