India\'s cricketers today received huge cash bonuses after beating World Cup champion Australia in the limited-overs series this week.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India organised a public reception and announced an award of US$2.5 million for the team.

The team won the best-of-three finals series 2-0 to cap a controversy-riddled three-month tour of Australia.

The tour was marred by controversies involving racism, sledging and umpiring, with much of it centered on spinner Harbhajan Singh.
