Australian players were seen drinking from a shoe as they celebrated their memorable T20 World Cup triumph in the dressing room after beating New Zealand in the final in Dubai on Sunday.

The Australian duo of Marcus Stoinis and Matthew Wade was seen drinking from a shoe as the team celebrated their maiden T20 World Cup triumph on Sunday. Australia defeated New Zealand by 8 wickets in the final to lift their maiden T20 World Cup trophy at the Dubai International Stadium in Dubai.

The Aussies celebrated wildly in the dressing room after a memorable campaign in the World Cup. Wicket-keeper batter Wade was seen removing his shoe during the celebrations in the dressing room and pouring down a drink in it before chugging it down as his teammates cheered him on in a video shared by the ICC on social media.

Stoinis joins him as he took gulps down a drink from Wade's shoe to celebrate Australia's win. The 'shoey' celebration was introduced to the world by Aussie Formula One star Daniel Ricciardo, who had celebrated his victory in the German Grand Prix in 2016 by drinking champagne from his shoe.

The likes of Lewis Hamilton have also pulled off similar celebrations in the past and on Sunday, it was Wade and Stoinis who continued the trend of drinking from a shoe post Australia's T20 World Cup win.
