The Pakistan Cricket Board is to pay 500,000 rupees ($5,900) in prize money to each player in the team that defeated Australia by three wickets in the second test at Leeds, England.

Pakistan leveled the two-test series at 1-1 under new captain Salman Butt on Saturday when it chased down a target of 180 runs for the loss of seven wickets on the fourth day at Headingley. It was Pakistan's first victory in a Test against Australia in 15 years.

PCB chairman Ijaz Butt said in a statement that the non-playing members of the squad and team officials will also receive 250,000 rupees ($2,950).
