ICC announce prize money for T20 World Cup

The International Cricket Council (ICC) confirmed today that the team that earns glory at the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 on 13 November in Melbourne, will take home a cheque of $1.6 million.

The total prize pot of $5.6m will see the runners-up assured of $800,000 and the losing semi-finalists will receive $400,000 each at the end of the 45-match tournament being played across seven venues in Australia from 16 October.

Following the same structure as the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021, the eight teams that exit at the Super 12 stage will receive $70,000 each, with a victory in each of the 30 games in that phase worth $40,000. 

Afghanistan, Australia, Bangladesh, England, India, New Zealand, Pakistan and South Africa are confirmed to start their tournament at the Super 12 stage.

The same structure is in place for the first-round victories - with $40,000 available to those who win each of the 12 games, amounting to $480,000.

The four teams knocked out in the first round will get $40,000 each. 

Teams whose campaigns begin in the first round are Namibia, the Netherlands, Sri Lanka, the United Arab Emirates, Ireland, Scotland, the West Indies and Zimbabwe.

The four teams knocked out in the first round will get $40,000 each.

In last year’s T20 World Cup in the UAE Bangladesh national cricket team failed to win a single match in the Super 12 after having to go through the first round. The Super 12 exit saw them receive a guaranteed $70,000.

Bangladesh were drawn in Group-B in the first round along with Scotland, Oman, and Papua New Guinea.

Out of the three first-round matches, the Tigers won two against Papua New Guinea and Oman respectively. This meant that the Tigers received a total of $80,000 for the two wins. They lost n their opening fixture against Scotland.

In total, Bangladesh, despite their dismal display in the marquee tournament, went home with a total amount of $150,000 following their Super 12 exit in 2021.
