England's Jason Roy made an unbeaten 91 off 53 balls as Delhi Daredevils beat Mumbai Indians off the final ball of the match in the Indian Premier League.

With 11 needed from the final over, Roy hit a four and a six off the first two deliveries before a single over cover sealed a seven-wicket win in Mumbai.

His innings contained six fours and six sixes as Delhi secured their first win of the tournament.

Roy is one of 12 England players in this year's IPL.

Australia's Dan Christian claimed 2-35 and New Zealand's Trent Boult 2-39 as Delhi restricted Mumbai to 194-7 from 20 overs.

Defending champions Mumbai are bottom of the table after losing their first three games.

England pace bowler Liam Plunkett, signed by Delhi Daredevils as a replacement for South Africa's Kagiso Rabada, has yet to play in this year's competition.
