14th NOVEMBER 2021. Every Australian fan will remember this date with a sense of pride and joy. For, Aaron Finch and his men created history in the deserts of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), defeating New Zealand by 8 wickets in the summit clash of the 2021 T20 World Cup to lift their maiden T20 World Cup title.

Even though the New Zealand side posted a mammoth total of 172/4 on the board, the kangaroos kept their cool in the run chase and went past the finish line.

Now, let us come to the finances involved in the tournament, and look at the prize money that each side will get. The total prize money of the 2021 T20 World Cup is $5.6 Million (INR 42 Crores). And, this prize money will be divided among the 16 participating teams of the tournament.

The winners, Australia will receive a total amount of INR 13.1 Crores (INR 11.9 Crores for winning the tournament and an additional INR 1.2 Crores for winning 4 out of their 5 league matches in the Super 12 stages). On the other hand, New Zealand will receive an amount of INR 7.15 Crores (INR 5.95 Crores for ending up as the runners-up and an additional INR 1.2 Crores for posting 4 wins in the Super 12 stages).

The 2 semifinalists of the tournament, England and Pakistan are slated to receive a sum of $400000 each (INR 3 Crores). Apart from that, Pakistan will receive an additional amount of INR 1.5 Crores for posting 5 wins in the Super 12 stages (total INR 4.5 Crores), while England will receive an additional amount of INR 1.2 Crores for winning 4 out of their 5 Super 12 matches (total INR 4.2 Crores).

And then, there come the other 8 teams that could not qualify beyond the Super 12 stages of the tournament.

And, each team that qualified for the Super 12 stages of the tournament is slated to receive a sum of $70000 (INR 52 Lakhs).

Each of these teams will receive $40000 (INR 30 Lakhs), and an additional $40000 (INR 30 Lakhs) for each win posted in the qualifying stages of the tournament.
