Australia as a cricketing nation, known for its mental toughness and its never-say-die attitude. This is what makes them the six-time ODI World Cup champion. After losing the two initial matches of the World Cup, Australia’s campaign chances looked dicey and they were languishing at the bottom of the points table. They rose as victors when it mattered the most to show the World reasons why they stand out.

They won 9 matches on the trot and went on to win the ODI World Cup final by defeating the favorites of the tournament in a one-sided affair. The country of Australia is celebrating together the joy of winning the tournament. 

Australians are also known for their unique approaches of celebrating their victory. Such an instance was seen in the T20 World Cup in Dubai, when the players were drinking beer from a shoe. These unique antics often get mixed reactions from fans around the world.
