The ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 is the 13th Cricket World Cup, scheduled to be held in India from 4 October to 18 November 2023. It will be the second time that India has hosted the Cricket World Cup, after the 1987 tournament.
The ICC has announced the prize money for the 2023 Cricket World Cup. The winning team will receive $4 million, while the runners-up will receive $2 million. The losing semi-finalists will each receive $1 million, and the losing quarter-finalists will each receive $500,000. The eliminated teams in the group stage will each receive $200,000.
The prize money for the 2023 Cricket World Cup is a significant increase from the prize money for the 2019 Cricket World Cup. In 2019, the winning team received $1.6 million, while the runners-up received $800,000. The losing semi-finalists each received $400,000, and the losing quarter-finalists each received $200,000.
The increase in prize money for the 2023 Cricket World Cup is a reflection of the growing popularity of cricket around the world. The 2019 Cricket World Cup was the most-watched cricket tournament in history, with an estimated global audience of 2.5 billion people. The 2023 Cricket World Cup is expected to be even more popular, as it will be held in India, the world’s most populous country.
The increase in prize money is also a sign of the ICC’s commitment to growing the game of cricket. The ICC hopes that the increased prize money will attract more top players to the tournament and help make the Cricket World Cup even more competitive.
The 2023 Cricket World Cup will surely be a major sporting event, and the increased prize money will only add to the excitement of the tournament.
