FAF AFTER THE MATCH:

"Always a pleasure playing against Australia and a nice, close game. We at least wanted to end with a small smile. Rassie's innings was a great example for young batters. Immy is like the heartbeat of the team and JP is the father figure of the team and we will miss them. But extremely happy that we can send greats like that with wins"
