The video was shared by Zimbabwe Cricket on their official Twitter handle.
"Castle Corner, see what you've done? But who can blame us! Thanks for the support and inspiration, home or away!," the video caption read.
In the video, the Zimbabwe players, including star batter Sikandar Raza, can be seen singing and dancing to a song inside the team bus.
After the visitors elected to bowl, Ryan Burl (five for 10) played a starring role in dismissing the hosts for a lowly 141
In reply, Zimbabwe overcame a wobbly chase to beat the cricket powerhouse for the first time in Australia when they hauled in the target in the 39th over, triggering scenes of celebration.
