One of the officials of the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) has confirmed the prize money for the winners and the runner-ups of the thirteenth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020 final).
As the Indian T20 league has been organized amidst the global pandemic which is known to hit the finances economically across the globe, the BCCI has decided to cut the prize-money amount to half.
The scenario will be different from that of the last editions of the IPLs following blows given by the Coronavirus. The winners are to get 10 crores as the Mumbai Indians (MI), who won the IPL 2019, took 20 crores to their home. On the other hand, the runner-ups will be getting 6.25 INR Crore instead of 12.5 crores.

“The financial rewards have been reworked as a part of the cost-cutting measures. The champions will get 10 crores instead of 20 crores. The runners-up will get 6.25 crore instead of 12.5 crores,” a BCCI official was quoted as saying by PTI.
Notably, IPL 2020 final MI vs DC is to be played at the Dubai International Stadium, Dubai and the cash-rich league will finally be terminated holding its overall 60 matches.
