The Board of Control for Cricket in India on Wednesday has awarded a cash prize of ₹65 lakh to the Indian disability cricket team that won the World Series last year.

BCCI president Sourav Ganguly and secretary Jay Shah presented a cheque of ₹65 lakh to skipper Vikrant Keni, an official said.

The amount was approved by the Committee of Administrators.
