It was a tight finish, great for the game of cricket. Have been great to be involved in such a historic event. It's been great, it's been different from the first two tests, helped the bowlers under the lights. If you have a game plan you can still score under the lights. Starc has been hitting them well, so thought if he could get one in the middle...Shaun has been doing well too with the bat. Bit of a rest before the WI series and the camp in Hobart.

Josh Hazlewood is the player of the match.
Hazlewood: I was ready to go with the bat but wasn't required. Smith wanted Starc to go ahead of us. Was entertaining cricket, harder at night with the ball swinging. Bowlers did well under it as well, taking full advantage. Little bit of everything, the ball, the grass, everything helped for it to swing.
David Warner is the player of the series.
Vice-captaincy agreeing with me, great to contribute to the team and it's good. Quite challenging to bat the lights, the pitch had grass, bit of swing and under lights it was tough. The Hobart was on our mind but happy to get over the line. I think it's about backing myself and keeping everything simple. That's the way I approach my game and will continue doing so.
It was an outstanding game of cricket, contrast to the previous. Experiment went off well, the crowd supported off, and the game was an excellent one too. Yes, we thought we had a chance. We have won games from situations we didn't was possible. We came short but we would like to keep fighting. Unfortunate the DRS incident happened and had a bearing on the game but take nothing away from how well Australia played and won. Boult was outstanding, under an injury cloud too coming into the game. Learn a lot here and learn quickly. Huge couple of Tests in New Zealand v Australia but first we have Sri Lanka at home and then a few ODIs too.
Was tough work, they bowled really well. The ball started swinging a bit more towards the end and it became tougher. Worked really hard at getting better against the swinging ball.
Coach gave me the license to get the runs quickly. Got too excited to try and hit it out. The Marsh family are in the stadium but they went into hiding.
