After India's stunning win at the Kensington Oval, Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Jay Shah has announced that a prize money of Rs 125 crore will be awarded for the T20 World Cup 2024. “I am delighted to announce a prize money of Rs 125 crore for Team India for winning the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2024. The team has displayed exceptional talent, determination and sportsmanship throughout the tournament. Congratulations to all the players, coaches and support staff for this outstanding achievement,” read the tweet on Twitter.

Rohit Sharma and his team created history and became the first team to win the T20 World Cup. This team did not lose a single match in the entire tournament. Jay Shah issued a statement to the media on Sunday and congratulated the team for their excellent performance.

Jai Shah's statement said, “Under the exceptional leadership of Rohit Sharma, this team has shown remarkable resolve and resilience, making it the first team in the history of the ICC T20 World Cup to win the tournament undefeated.”

The team, which lost the final of the 2023 ODI World Cup at home to Australia, had faced a lot of criticism before the tournament. The win against South Africa was a huge victory for India as the whole country celebrated the momentous occasion in grand style.

“He has faced his critics many times and silenced them with his brilliant performances. His journey has been inspiring and today he has joined the ranks of great sportspersons, achieving something that is a matter of pride and joy for all Indians,” Jai Shah said in the statement.

“It gives me immense pride to talk about such an extraordinary team. However, it is this team that has made us all proud with their passion, hard work and indomitable spirit. Under the leadership of Rohit Sharma and with the help of Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah and others, they have fulfilled the dreams and aspirations of 1.4 billion Indians,” the statement said.
