Dubai. India and Australia will be face to face in the ICC World Test Championship Final 2023 to be held next month. The International Cricket Council on Friday announced that the winning team of the tournament will get $1.6 million (about Rs 13.21 crore) as prize money.
The ICC on Friday informed that huge prize money apart from a resounding victory in the longest format of the game will be major incentives for both the teams.
