The celebrations have not stopped for the joyous Australian team as they beat India by six wickets at the Narendra Modi stadium on Sunday. Cummins was seen posing with the World Cup trophy amidst the vibrant environment of the Sabarmati river.

After the win in the final against India, an elated Cummins said that they played the best cricket for the final game. "I think we saved our best for last. Couple of big match players stood up, and we're pretty stuffed. We've been batting first pretty much for the whole tournament, today we thought, it's a good night to chase down, we thought it might actually get a little bit easier. Everyone was pretty keen to get out there. This year will be remembered for a long, long time and we had a lot of success over the winter and this one peaks it all. At the top of the mountain."
