ICC Announces Prize Money


From fixtures to squads to venues to reserve days and everything in between, this is your one-stop shop for all your ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 information. Five years on from the last edition, the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup returns this month as 16 teams duke it out for supremacy in the game’s shortest format. Commencing on 17 October at the Oman Cricket Academy Ground, the showpiece event is scheduled to finish on 14 November in Dubai when the tournament’s two best teams meet in a decider that has plenty to live up to after 2016’s epic conclusion.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Sunday announced the prize money details for the men’s T20 World Cup set to begin on October 17 in Oman and the UAE. Cricket’s world governing body, in a press release, revealed that the winners of the tournament will take home a cheque of USD 1.6 million while the runners-up will get half that amount. There will be 16 teams taking part in the men’s T20 World Cup, scheduled to be held from October 17 to November 14. Every participating team will receive part of the US $5.6m allocated as prize money for the tournament.

The ICC has also decided to increase the minimum number of overs for delayed and rain-interrupted matches. During the group stages of the T20 World Cup, each team will need to bat for a minimum of five overs for the result to be decided by the DLS method. That’s the norm for any T20I currently. But for the semi-finals and the final, each team will need to bat for a minimum of 10 overs to effect a result, as was the norm in the women’s T20 World Cup last year, where it became a major talking point after the first semi-final, between England and India, was washed out in Sydney, and the absence of a reserve day saw England eliminated.
