Wade, Stoinis drink from wicket-keeper's shoe as Aussies celebrate maiden T20 WC title win

DUBAI: Australian players Matthew Wade and Marcus Stoinis celebrated the team's maiden T20 World Cup triumph at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium by drinking from the wicket-keeper's shoe.

Mitchell Marsh's brutal unbeaten 77 helped Australia beat New Zealand by eight wickets as the Aussies lifted the coveted trophy for the first time.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Monday shared a video from Australia's dressing room where the players can be seen enjoying the final win.

Wade and Stoinis went a step ahead and poured the drink in Wade's shoe and drank to join the unique celebrations.

"How's your Monday going?" ICC tweeted the video.

After the victory, skipper Aaron Finch described the feeling of winning the maiden T20 World Cup title as "awesome" and said the victory is great for Australian cricket.

"Yeah, it's awesome, it really is. I think there's been so much talk about this being the one that's been elusive to Australia. And to be fair, we probably underperformed in the past, if we are being honest with ourselves," said Finch.

"We've had some great teams along the way. This team is pretty special. The camaraderie, the way that everyone really cares for each other and looks after each other, looks out for each other; pretty special. So yeah, it's awesome. That's brilliant and it's great for Australian cricket," he added.
