As announced by the International Cricket Council before the start of the tournament, the winner of the tournament will receive a total prize money of USD 1.6 million while the runner-up will receive USD 0.8 million.

For the other 8 teams in the Super 12 stage, the prize money was set at USD 70,000 each.
The 2022 edition of the tournament saw some astonishing results. The victory of the Netherlands over South Africa enabled Pakistan to qualify for the semi-finals. Pakistan itself had lost to Zimbabwe in the first group stage.
