Mumbai: Riding on opener Jason Roy's (91 not out) scintillating knock against three-time champions Mumbai Indians, Delhi Daredevils registered their maiden win in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Wankhede stadium here on Saturday.

Chasing a mammoth 195-run target, the match went down to the final ball, however, Roy held his nerve to hand his side a thrilling victory.

Needing 11 off the final over, Roy hit a cover drive for four in the first ball followed by a six over fine leg. He however, missed the next four deliveries making it a one-run, one-ball affair.

He finally took a single off the final ball to help Delhi complete a thrilling seven-wicket win against Mumbai.

Roy forged some crucial partnerships with other batters which helped Delhi taste success in their third match of the season.

While he shared a 50-run partnership with skipper Gautam Gambhir (15) for the opening wicket, the opener also stitched a crucial 69 and 60-run partnership with Rishabh Pant (47) and Shreyas Iyer (27) respectively.

For Mumbai, left-arm spinner Krunal Pandya bagged couple of wickets for 21 runs while left-arm pacer Mustafizur Rahman scalped one for 25.

Leggie Rahul Tewatia struck in the ninth and 11th over to get rid off the two in-form openers.

After their fall, wicketkeeper-batsman Ishan Kishan and skipper Rohit Sharma (18) shared a crucial 57-run stand for the third wicket, which helped the host to cross 150-run mark.
