Watch Video: Australia’s cricket stars drink champagne from shoe in bizarre celebration of T20 World Cup win

Matthew Wade started the 'shoey' celebration and was soon joined by Marcus Stoinis.

Australia’s cricket stars Matthew Wade and Marcus Stoinis celebrated their T20 World Cup victory after beating New Zealand in the finals on Sunday in a bizarre manner with the duo drinking champagne from Wade’s shoe.

In a video posted on ICC's Instagram handle, Wade is seen removing his right shoe, pouring a drink in it and then gulping it down with his Australian teammates and support staff cheering him on.

Stoinis, had partnered Wade in a crucial role in helping Australia beat Pakistan in the semi-final, then joins his teammate by pouring his drink in the same shoe and glugging it down.

But Stoinis didn’t appear to like the taste and is heard saying "it's a little shoddy".

The practice of a “shoey” celebration was apparently first started by Australia's Formula 1 champion driver Daniel Ricciardo after winning the 2016 German Grand Prix.
