Surrey batsman Jason Roy hit 91 from 53 balls to seal a final-ball victory for Delhi Daredevils over Mumbai Indians.
Roy batted the full 20 overs and hit the winning runs for his Delhi Daredevils on the final ball of a thriller at the Wankhede Stadium.
After Mumbai Indians made 194/7 from their 20 overs, it was up to opener Roy, in the Daredevils XI for the first time, to lead the charge in response for his side.

Opening alongside captain and former India star Gautam Gambhir, Roy took the game to Hardik Pandya early on.
Although Gambhir fell for 15, Roy was joined by wicket keeper Rishabh Pant who proved a willing partner, making 47.

A spectacular catch saw off Glenn Maxwell but Shreyas Iyer kept Roy company for the closing stages.
The Surrey man hit six sixes and six fours as part of his 91, with a whopping strike rate of 171.69 but it still went to the final ball.
Requring 11 to win, Roy sent the first two balls to the rope (one four, one six) before three dots added the pressure. He finally found the single needed on the last ball and crowned himself as the hero of the match.
