The BCCI on Sunday announced a cash prize of Rs. 20 lakh each for members of the Indian team, which lifted its third Under-19 World Cup title in Townsville after defeating defending champions Australia.

“Many congratulations to the Indian team for winning the ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup. We won the ‘senior’ World Cup last year, and now our boys have triumphed in the junior version of the tournament.

This is a great day for Indian cricket. The Board would like to announce a cash prize of Rs. 20 lakh to each player, and Rs 15 lakh to each member of the support staff,” BCCI president N. Srinivasan said in a statement.

BCCI secretary Sanjay Jagdale also extended his wishes to the Indian team and said every member of the squad worked hard towards this victory.

“The Indian cricket team has played some extraordinary cricket in the ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup. The members of the team have worked hard, and deserve the title. Heartiest congratulations to the boys and support staff for winning the World Cup,” he said.
