The winners of the upcoming World Cup in England will receive a record $4 million (£3.1 million) for lifting the trophy, the International Cricket Council announced on Friday.
In all a total of $10 million is on offer during the showpiece men's one-day international tournament, which starts later this month and lasts 46 days.
As well as the champions' pay-out, each team that wins a group stage match will receive $40,000 (£31,000), with the losing semi-finalists collecting $800,000 (£625,000) and the runners-up banking $2 million (£1.56 million).
