India won the T20 World Cup finals against South Africa by 7 runs after a thrilling face-off between the two teams at Barbados. The men in blue went undefeated this season, winning all their matches and taking the trophy home. The BCCI announced a special bonus of ₹125 crores for team India, supporting staff, head coach as well as travelling reserves.

Rohit Sharma raised his voice against inequality

Following former Team India coach Rahul Dravid’s example, skipper Rohit Sharma also displayed a generous gesture by reportedly offering to forgo his INR 5 crore bonus prize money.

He intended to share it with the support staff who played a crucial role behind the scenes in securing India’s T20 World Cup 2024 victory.

A staff member who traveled from Barbados to Delhi with the T20 World Cup champions praised Rohit Sharma, saying everyone should learn from the Indian skipper how to appreciate the support staff.

One of India’s support staff members said, “when the 125cr prize money was distributed, Rohit Sharma raised his voice and said ‘support staff shouldn’t get such less money’. He was even ready to relinquish his own bonus for us”.

Rahul Dravid refuses extra 2.5 Cr bonus

Former Indian head coach Rahul Dravid was offered the same Rs 5 crore prize money as the Indian men’s cricket team members after their historic win in the T20 World Cup 2024 final.

However, according to a report, the 51-year-old declined the extra bonus and accepted the same Rs 2.5 crore as the rest of India’s coaching staff.

“Rahul wanted the same bonus money (Rs 2.5 crore) as the rest of his support staff (bowling coach Paras Mhambrey, fielding coach T Dilip, and batting coach Vikram Rathore). We respect his sentiments,” a BCCI source was quoted as saying by the Hindustan Times on Wednesday.

Rohit Sharma and Rahul Dravid have undoubtedly set an example displaying sportsman spirit and loyalty towards the staff who are equally as deserving for the win.
