India beats Australia by 7 wickets in the 3rd ODI in Melbourne. This is proudmoment for all of the Indians. After their victory, Dhoni was declared Man Of The Series and Yuzvendra Chahal was declared Man Of The Match of the ODI series.
Yuzvendra Chahal and M.S. Dhoni were given $500 as recognization for their performance and presentation. They both donated their prize money to charity.
Gavaskar has slammed the austrailian hosts for not giving any cash prize to the indian team and only giving trophy after ODI triumph. He said –
“What is $500, the team has got only a trophy. Organizers earn huge amount of money through broadcasting. Why can’t they give good prize money to the players? Players are the sole reason for the sport getting huge money from sponsors. This money should be given to the winners for their performance, efforts and presentation.”
