Gautam Gambhir and Rohit Sharma both look to win their first match in this years Indian Premier League

Jason Roy smashed an unbeaten 91 as Delhi Daredevils defeated hosts Mumbai Indians by seven wickets in a last-ball thriller in the Indian Premier League (IPL) in Mumbai yesterday.

The openers not only scored 84 runs in the first six overs but shared the crease in a 102-run blistering partnership which came off only 54 balls.
