PTC News Desk: Virat Kohli's cunning and Rohit Sharma's inspiring leadership ended India's agonising 11-year wait for a world championship as the star-studded squad defeated South Africa by seven runs in a see-saw final to win its second T20 World Cup trophy on Saturday.

At Kensington Oval in Barbados, skipper Rohit Sharma won the toss and chose to bat first, and India scored 176 for 7 in 20 overs. South Africa was limited to 169/8 in response.

What was India's prize money after winning the T20 World Cup?

The International Cricket Council (ICC) awarded $2.45 million (around INR 20.42 crore) to Team India, the winners of the 2024 T20 World Cup.

How much money did South Africa, the runners-up in the 2024 T20 World Cup, get?

South Africa, which lost the top match by a slim margin, received $1.28 million (about INR 10.67 crore).

How much money did Afghanistan and England, the losing semifinalist teams, get?

England and Afghanistan received $787,500 apiece (about INR 6.56 crore) after losing to South Africa and India in the semi-finals of the competition, respectively.

It looked like Rohit Sharma and his team would have to settle for second place in another World Cup final when Heinrich Klaasen (52 off 27 balls) was going toe-to-toe with the in-form Indian spinners, but they battled back into the match with a lot of assistance from South Africa.

After being severely criticized by his own fans for the previous six months, Hardik Pandya managed to hold on for 16 runs in the last over to secure India's first ICC trophy since 2013 as well as their first-ever T20 World Cup victory in the post-IPL era.

The Indian team's stars, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, were clearly relieved and ecstatic. The outcome served as a fitting send-off for head coach Rahul Dravid as well. India set the record for the highest total in a T20 World Cup final thanks to the combined efforts of Axar Patel (47 off 31) and Virat Kohli (76 off 59).
