There are no special prizes, for 600 has no special properties as a number. Mathematicians say that it is an apologetic number. Teams that score 600 tend not to lose matches. No batsman has scored 600 in an innings in First Class cricket. Only 3 bowlers have more than 600 wickets in Tests - Murali (800), Warne (708) and Kumble (619). There doesn't seem too much there to apologise about.
