"It was a good game for us. Mitchell Johnson bowled and batted well, credit of the victory should go to Mitchell and Axar," Sehwag told reporters after Kings XI Punjab defeated Rajasthan Royals in a pulsating 'Super Over' contest.

Chasing 192, Punjab spinner Axar Patel blasted a four of the last ball to take the game into a tie.

Shaun Marsh then cracked three boundaries to amass 15-2 in the Super Over, before Mitchell Johnson dismissed Shane Watson and later James Faulkner was run out as Rajasthan suffered to their first defeat following five straight wins.
