Jason Roy played the kind of innings that has made him a mainstay in England's white ball squads to guide the Delhi Daredevils to a seven wicket win over the Mumbai Indians on Saturday.

Needing 11 in the last over, Roy smas-hed a boundary and a six off the first two deliveries of Musta-fizur Rahman.

The final four overs would yield just 27 runs with wickets tumbling to the Daredevils pace duo of Trent Boult and Mohammad Shami but Rahul Tewatia (2/36) was the pick of the bowlers after picking up the wickets of openers Lewis and Suryakumar.

The Next Stop: Delhi will get a chance to get consecutive victories when they meet Chris Lynn's Kolkata Knight Riders on Tuesday whilst the winless-Mumbai take on Virat Kohli's Royal Challengers Bangalore on Wednesday to try and get the ball rolling for IPL 11. But as the first inning progressed it was raining runs from the top order batsmen of Mumbai Indians. Suryakumar Yadav and Evin Lewis laying a strong platform for the reigning champions. Yadav and Lewis hit a 4 and 6 respectively.

On Saturday, Mumbai Indians was playing against Delhi Daredevils and Delhi's batsman Glen Maxwell hit a shot from covers.

Iyer and Roy ensured that there was no further damage and finally took their side home.

Sunrisers Hyderabad panicked and flailed in a chase again, but nowhere near as much as they had against Mumbai Indians on Thursday.

Over 1: 15/0, In this over MI scores 15 runs. It was defendable. When we started fielding, we wanted momentum and take early wickets but we couldn't get back in the game.

The belief was strengthened when Rishabh Pant went after leg-spinner Mayank Markande and scored a 25-ball 47 with half a dozen 4s and two sixes. The only hiccup for Daredevils was the cheap exit of Glenn Maxwell in the 14th over. But what wonders a few dot balls can do in this format, even against someone batting in his 90s. Delhi did not win this game, Mumbai let then win it. And incredibly, Roy swung and missed not once, not twice, but thrice.

The Indians began the competition with a pair of desperately tight reverses at the hands of Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad, before another followed here as debutant Jason Roy inspired the visitors with an outstanding unbeaten 91 at Wankhede Stadium. "I think that's why he deserves this opportunity in the first place is he's taking the form from the nets and the practice games into the games", said MI's bowling coach Shane Bond. "I just asked him to hold your position and just smash the ball".
