England World Cup stars Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid were forced to flee the team's wild celebrations immediately following the World Cup trophy presentation in a culture clash for the new world champions.
Ali and Rashid bolted from the middle of the trophy podium moments after England captain Eoin Morgan raised the ICC Cricket World Cup Trophy and confetti began to shoot from cannons alongside the "champions" signage placed in front of the team.
As the team burst into cheers and flames exploded behind them, teammates were handed sponsored champagne bottles and a few short moments later began spraying them in all directions.
As star batsman Jonny Bairstow popped the first cork and sprayed half his team in Veuve Clicquot bubbly, Rashid was spotted actively pushing Ali by the shoulder towards their nearest exit on the opposite side of the team's huddle.
The pair's Muslim faith forbids them from consuming alcohol.
Their quick exit to avoid being sprayed with the golden froth was both celebrated as a warm gesture for their teammates and a black-mark on the team's culture for failing to include them in the incredible scenes following an even more incredible World Cup triumph after a tied super over finish.
England's wild celebrations spilled about the place in the following minutes as players smothered each other in victory and champagne just as world champion Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton was doing with his teammate Valtteri Bottas just a short while away following the British Grand Prix at Silverstone.
With the champagne showers flowing freely, there was nowhere for Rashid and Ali to hide — however both players were spotted after the champagne explosion with grins on their faces, taking photos with other members of the team.
The MCC had announced earlier in the week the 30,000 crowd at Lord's would be in party mode for the final. 60,000 pints of beer, 8,000 cups of tea or coffee and 1500 bottles of champagne were going to be consumed at the venue on the final day of the tournament.
The vision of Ali and Rashid being forced to flee the celebrations further highlighted the multi-cultural make-up of the England team.
Ali and Rashid were both born in the UK, but are products of immigrants who originally fled the contested Kashmir region in Pakistan.
Captain Morgan is from Ireland, hero Ben Stokes lived in New Zealand until he was 12-years-old, star bowler Joffra Archer grew up in Barbados and Jason Roy was originally from South Africa.
Champagne has previously been a contentious issue in the English dressing room.
Just as he did following England's 2015 Ashes triumph, Cook in 2017 told his team to put bottles of champagne away as they celebrated a 3-1 series win over South Africa because Ali was not able to participate in the celebrations after a tour where he was named player of the series.
A video of Cook's moment of classy captaincy is being shared across social media in the wake of England's latest World Cup celebrations where former skipper Nasser Hussain labelled it "the sort of culture you want to create".
Eoin Morgan's team certainly fell short of the mark that Cook so famously set two years ago.
