Mumbai: Jason Roy produced a masterclass innings to help Delhi Daredevils beat Mumbai Indians by 7 wickets in a nail-biting finish at Wankhede Stadium on Saturday. Although Krunal Pandya outscored him with the bat, Hardik made up for it with the ball.

Roy was on 35 off 15 balls and his captain Gautam Gambhir on 15 as Delhi flew to 50 in five overs. In this way, any batsman of the Mumbai Indians team could not make runs on these balls.

This, perhaps, could be a front-loaded blueprint for the rest of their season, with perhaps Morris held back for the slog overs; and Gambhir playing the role of a firefighting No. 4 or No. 5 in case Daredevils lose early wickets, and remaining happy not to get a hit if the power-hitters really get going. Mumbai's batting heights came in phases, and during those phases, nearly every Delhi bowler was punished.

Hyderabad now lead the points table with two wins from two games and two points; they also have a better run rate than the others. Here's where the Mumbai bowlers will come into play. In reply, Delhi Daredevils enjoyed the upperhand for a large part of the innings.

Mumbai were at 166/4 after 16 overs and before Christian's over, things were looking pretty good for the home team.
