Jos Buttler didn’t use champagne for the celebration. He made sure that Moeen Ali & Adil Rashid shouldn’t be around when Champagne bottle opened.
If same kind of respect would have been to Hindu Cricketers in India then,

Islam takes an uncompromising stand in prohibiting intoxicants. It forbids Muslims from drinking or even selling alcohol.
The general rule in Islam is that any beverage that get people intoxicated when taken is unlawful, both in small and large quantities, whether it is alcohol, drugs, fermented raisin drink or something else.
