Channel Nine TV host David Campbell has criticised cricketer Shane Warne's "thirsty" questions and said it is proof Australia has a problem with alcohol.

Warne caused a stir when he interviewed Australia's World Cup winning cricketers last night, repeatedly asking how "thirsty" they were and how much they'd drink.

After the hashtag #thirsty trended around Australia, Warne tweeted at his critics.

Do gooders get stuffed. Straya is the best place in the world, not politically correct, keep it real. Aussies celebrate properly ! #thirsty

He was of course right. Australia's players were all over social media last night celebrating with beers and spirits.

A group of players even called Hobart commercial radio on Monday morning while there were still heavily intoxicated. The full audio is here... and they are all just smashed drunk.

Warne couldn't help himself standing up for the Australian players' deep thirst.

Aust has won the World Cup after 6 weeks of hard work & people are banging on that I asked the players about a drink to celebrate ? Please

The host of "Mornings" was asked about Warne's questions and the following coverage.

Campbell said he gave up booze last year and the media has a responsibility to do better.
