Sri Lanka will receive US $ 200,000 in prize money for finishing fifth in the World Test Championship (WTC), the International Cricket Council (ICC) announced.
Sri Lanka were in the running to qualify for the final heading into their last WTC series, away to New Zealand.
But a 2-0 series defeat meant that they missed out on the final and fell down the points table to finish in fifth.
The ICC announced an overall prize pool of US $ 3.8 million, for the nine teams that participated in the 2021-23 cycle of the WTC, with the winners and the runners-up receiving US $ 2.4 million of the entire pot.
The final of the 2021-2023 WTC, between Australia and India, will begin on June 7 at The Oval in London.
The winning team will receive US $ 1.6 million, while the runners-up get US $ 800,000.
South Africa, who finished third, will receive US $ 450,000 while fourth-placed England get US $ 350,000.
The remaining four teams will split the remaining US $ 400,000 equally.
