Delhi Daredevils moved top of the IPL table after powering to an emphatic seven-wicket victory over Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium.

Delhi set up a third win in four matches after skittling Mumbai for just 92 - the lowest total posted in this season's competition.

Only captain Harbhajan Singh (33) and Rohit Sharma (29) reached double figures for Mumbai during an inept batting display before Delhi eased past their modest target with 5.1 overs to spare.

Umesh Yadav, Shahbaz Nadeem, Morne Morkel and Ajit Agarkar all claimed two wickets for Delhi and Virender Sehwag then led a routine run-chase with a quickfire 32.

Kevin Pietersen scored only nine runs before pulling RP Singh straight to Davy Jacobs at midwicket, leaving it up to Mahela Jayawardene (17no) and Ross Taylor (11no) to see Delhi over the line.

Delhi and Mumbai are now among four teams tied on six points, all of whom occupy the semi-final places at this early stage.
