Opener Roy made a mockery of a listless Mumbai bowling attack as he hammered six fours and as many sixes in his 53-ball knock to help Delhi overhaul a 195-run target to earn their first win of the season.

Mumbai Indians, despite a commendable performance in the first innings, could not create any magic with the ball and faced their third consecutive loss sending them straight to the last standing position amongst all the teams. Although the equation was simple, the final run was not with the Bangladeshi quick bowling three dot balls in a row to leave Roy needing one run from the final ball with pressure mounting.

For Mumbai Indians, their batting line up is not up to its full strength as not even one of their batsman has scored a half-century in their two matches so far.

Mumbai Indians vs Delhi Daredevils live cricket streaming online will be telecasted on Star Sports First, Star Sports Hindi, Star Sports Tamil channels.

Teenager Ishan Kishan carried on from where the openers had left off, picking 44 from 23 balls with some innovative strokeplay, but his wicket, bowled off a full toss trying a switch hit kick-started a procession of wickets that put a dent to MI's scoring.

"We thought they were 20-30 runs short", Delhi captain Gautam Gambhir said. But the Gambhir-led side bounced back in style against Mumbai with Jason Roy smashing an unbeaten 91 in his debut match for DD. Captain Rohit Sharma dropped himself to No 4 and instead promoted Suryakumar Yadav to the opener's slot.

On opening the innings Yadav said it was decided yesterday. Shakib (27 off 21 balls) and Williamson departed in quick succession but by then they had done their job and Yusuf Pathan (17* off 7 balls) launched Andre Russell into the stands to hand his former employers their second successive defeat. But Kieron Pollard brought MI back into the game with a stunning diving catch at long-off as Pant went back to the pavilion with the visitors at 119/2. There weren't much contributions from the others as Delhi's pacers bowled cleverly to outfox the Mumbai big-hitters at the death.

Pollard and Hardik took spectacular catches in the deep to dismiss Pant and Glenn Maxwell (13), respectively.

Alongside Shreyas Iyer, Roy made a push for home. Rishabh Pant stepped in at No.3 and complemented Roy. Roy-Pant were dominating the Mumbai bowlers with Hardik Pandya, Akila Dananjaya and Mayank Markande being hit all over the park. "The comeback was fantastic by the bowlers and hopefully we continue doing the same things", Iyer said after the match. "They batted really well and did not give us a chance in the first 10-12 overs".
