Sanju Samson is the Man of the Match for his knock of 60 off 48 balls. 

Sanju: JP gave me great support. It's a very big tournament. We are going very well as a team, and we would like to continue the momentum.

Zaheer: Wicket was slowing down. We had to get the right areas. The plan was to use to bowlers wisely. I think anything over 160 was a good total, so we had a chance. Key was two or three overs of leg-spin to Buttler and Pollard. 

Sanju and JP played brilliantly. We were bit light on out batting today. We are doing things under control really well. The processes are followed very dilligently. When you have a young team, there is a lot of excitement and energy. That is what has worked for DD this season.

That's it! Delhi Daredevils win by 10 runs.

Morris bowled a brilliant last over. Rohit was run out and then Harbhajan was trapped LBW first ball. 

Hardik Pandya got just a single off the first ball but then Rohit was involved in a mid pitch collision off the next ball trying to go for a nonexistent second which resulted in a run out. Morris then bowled a very full delivery and trapped Harbhajan LBW off the next ball. With 13 needed off 2, Morris bowled a brilliant yorker, Southee got an inside edge and got just a single. The last ball was a wayward full toss but Pandya sliced it to long off for just a single.

After 19 overs, Mumbai 144/5 ( Rohit Sharma 58 , Hardik Pandya 0)

An excellent over from Zaheer, a string of yorkers. After five runs off first four balls, Zaheer commits a mistake and bowls a full toss, Pollard spanks it over deep mid-wicket. But Zaheer bounces back to have Pollard caught at Deep extra cover. 21 needed off the last over.

PREVIEW: Delhi Daredevils (DD) will be keen to extend their new-found momentum by winning the third consecutive Indian Premier League (IPL) match when they clash against Mumbai Indians (DD) at the Feroz Shah Kotla in New Delhi on Saturday.

Daredevils, helmed by new skipper Zaheer Khan, began with a bump, getting beaten by Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), raising fears of yet another disappointing campaign that has been their story in the short history of the IPL tournament.

But unlike previous editions, the Daredevils have found an answer to overturn their false start, beating Kings XI Punjab and Royal Challengers Bangalore subsequently.

Quinton de Kock has been the leading run-scorer for Delhi Daredevils in the ongoing tournament so far.

These two victories were achieved as comfortably as they were beaten by KKR, inspiring confidence within the team.

The victories have lifted the Delhi boys to a healthy third in the standings with four points from three matches, in contrast to their opponents, who also have four points but have played two more.

Mumbai have been a victim of their inconsistency, incidentally also winning against Punjab and Bangalore.

The defending champions, however, served error-ridden performances to go down against Rising Pune Supergiants (RPS), Gujarat Lions (GL) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).

They have struggled to hit any rhythm but showed signs of getting their act together while successfully chasing 171 against Bangalore.

Mumbai's batting has lacked fluency. Their opening act have been poor with only skipper Rohit Sharma showing skill and zeal to fight it out against adversity.

Rohit has led from the front, scoring two match-winning half centuries. But head coach Ricky Ponting would like to have his other batsmen offer more to the cause.

Injuries have also pegged back Mumbai with Sri Lankan pacer Lasith Malinga ruled out of the tournament and Simmons flying back with a niggle. However, Kiwi pacer Mitchell McClenaghan has more than made up for Malinga's absence with six wickets so far.

Squads:

Delhi Daredevils: Zaheer Khan (captain), Quinton de Kock, JP Duminy, Mayank Agarwal, Shreyas Iyer, Carlos Brathwaite, Karun Nair, Pawan Negi, Rishabh Pant, Sanju Samson, Pawan Suyal, Jayant Yadav, Chris Morris, Sam Billings, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Imran Tahir, Mahipal Lomor, Chama Milind, Amit Mishra, Mohammed Shami, Shahbaz Nadeem, Khaleel Ahmed, Akhil Herwadkar, Pratyush Singh.

Mumbai Indians: Rohit Sharma (captain), Parthiv Patel, Hardik Pandya, Jos Buttler, Mitchell McClenaghan, Ambati Rayudu, Kieron Pollard, Harbhajan Singh, Jagadeesha Suchith, Tim Southee, Jasprit Bumrah, Shreyas Gopal, R. Vinay Kumar, Corey Anderson, Unmukht Chand, Marchant de Lange, Siddhesh Lad, Kishore Kamath, Krunal Pandya, Deepak Punia, Nitish Rana, Jitesh Sharma, Nathu Singh, Akshay Wakhare, Martin Guptill.
