The winners of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 will take home a winners’ cheque of USD 1.6 million while the runners up will get half that amount, the International Cricket Council confirmed today.
All 16 competing teams will receive part of the US $5.6m allocated as prize money for the tournament, which will be played in the United Arab Emirates and Oman from 17 October to 14 November. The two losing semi-finalists will receive $400,000 each from the games taking place on 10 and 11 November.
The four teams knocked out in the first round will take $40,000 each from an overall $ 160,000.
Meanwhile, there will be two scheduled Drinks Intervals in each ICC Men’s T20 World Cup game.
They will last for 2 minutes, 30 seconds and will be taken at the midpoint of each innings.
