Kolkata:The Platinum Jubilee Cup match between India and Pakistan at the Eden Gardens tomorrow will have a prize money of USD 45,000 (Rs 20.25 lakh) with the winning team getting USD 25,000 (Rs 11.25 lakh).

The runners up team would be richer by USD 15,000 (Rs 6.75 lakh), and the Man of the Match will gain USD 5,000 (Rs 2.25 lakh), BCCI Platinum Jubilee Committee Chairman Jagmohan Dalmiya told newspersons here.

Dalmiya said the former and present captains of India and Pakistan as also ex West Indies skipper Clive Lloyd, who would be felicitated during the dinner break, would be presented a silver salver, shawl and jubilee tie by union Sports Minister Sunil Dutt.

Those to be feted would be called one after the other in order of seniority, though exception would be made in case of those participating in the match - Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq, his Indian counterpart Sourav Ganguly, and former Indian skippers Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid - who would be called at the outset so as to give them sufficent time to rest before resumption of play.

A question mark hangs over the availability of External Affairs minister Natwar Singh for the match, as he is now in Cairo to attend the funeral of Yasser Arafat.

Dalmiya said as per playing condition, the game could be extended by 30 minutes in case of interruption.
