Despite finishing at number seven in the ICC Test Championship, the Pakistan Cricket Board is still going to receive a decent share in revenue.

The development was revealed as the International Cricket Council announced the prize money for the World Test Championship 2021-23 cycle. The amount is the same as for 2019-21 cycle.

A total sum of $3.8 million will be distributed between the nine teams. One of India or Australia would take home more than just a WTC mace. The winner will go home with a whopping prize of $1.6 million while the runners-up will pocket $800,000.

South Africa will receive $450,000 for finishing third the standings. England, who made a late surge and finished their campaign in fourth spot, will bag $350,000.

Sri Lanka, who were among the top teams in the race for a spot in the decider during the epic finale, finished fifth to earn $200,000.

The remaining teams New Zealand (No.6), Pakistan (No.7), West Indies (No.8), and Bangladesh (No.9) will be rewarded with a sum of $100,000 each.
