The Pakistan squad were rewarded with cash bonuses at a reception organised by the PCB for reaching the final of the ICC World Twenty20.

Each of the 15 Pakistan players and their eight officials were given Rs 2.5 million [approx. US$41,200]. "We may not have won the World Twenty20 title but our cricketers have made all of us proud by the way they played in the tournament," Nasim Ashraf, the PCB chairman, said.

The PCB also honoured Mohammad Yousuf for canceling his contract with the Indian Cricket League and returning to the national Test squad. Yousuf, 33, received $100,000 for signing a central contract with the board and a further $100,000 for becoming the ICC's Test player of the year.

The squad also received a cheque of Rs10 million [approx. US$164,000] from the Dubai-based Fortune Group owned by Mohammad Ali, a Pakistani businessman. The total prize money awarded was US$2 million.
