Delhi Daredevils beat Mumbai Indians by seven runs in the Indian Premier League this afternoon.

Delhi Daredevils have beaten Mumbai Indians by nine wickets in the Indian Premier League this afternoon.

Sachin Tendulkar (54) and Rohit Sharma (73) led the batting for Mumbai, as the visitors charged to 161-4.

A good batting crease offered little for the bowlers, with Umesh Yudav posting the best figures for the home side, taking 31-2.

However, the batting surface held up well for Delhi's innings, as Virender Sehwag smashed 95 not out, while fellow opening Mahela Jayawardene added 59 as the Daredevils eased past their opponents' total in 17 overs.

David Warner came out late in the innings for a seven-run cameo, as Sehwag just missed out on a century.
