Sources in the Pakistan team said today that the players were expecting some cash prizes for the best individual efforts and for winning the series.
"But when the prize distribution ceremony was held and the players were only handed out mementoes and trophies they were clearly disappointed and surprised," a source said.
"Normally there is always a winner's cheque for winning a international series and also for best individual performances like the player of the series which went to Misbah-ul-Haq," the source added.
The lack of cash awards at the prize distribution ceremony perhaps, indicates the financial position of the West Indies Cricket Board, which will be organizing the first ever Caribbean Premier League from next week.
"Our cricket board should take up this matter with the West Indies board. When they can organise the Caribbean Premier League why were there was no cash awards for this series," the source said.
