Mumbai - Delhi Daredevils bowled out Mumbai Indians for 92 before recording a seven-wicket victory to top the table in the Indian Premier League on Monday.

Mumbai captain Harbhajan Singh scored 33 and Rohit Sharma contributed 29 but no other batsmen reached double figures in the team's second lowest score in the IPL. Their lowest score was 87 against Kings XI Punjab in Mohali last year.

Delhi captain Virender Sehwag hit 32 off 36 balls as Delhi raced to 93-3 in 14.5 overs.

Mumbai missed star batsman Sachin Tendulkar, who is still nursing a finger injury after being struck by Australian quickie Doug Bollinger's short-pitched delivery in his team's IPL opener against Chennai Super Kings.

Delhi seamers Umesh Yadav, Morne Morkel and Ajit Agarkar picked up two wickets each after leftarm spinner Shahbaz Nadeem had removed both Mumbai openers within the space of three balls.

Rohit Sharma hit two top-edged boundaries over the wicketkeeper's head before holing out to Ross Taylor, while Kieron Pollard (1) and Dinesh Karthik (3) played reckless shots to leave their team reeling at 44-6 in the 11th over.

Singh dominated a 34-run stand with Clint McKay (8) before Irfan Pathan broke through, and Agarkar brought the innings to a close by clean bowling last man Pragyan Ojha with four balls remaining.

The Daredevils have six points from three wins and a loss. Mumbai also have six points but have lost one more match.

Scores:

Delhi Dare Devils 93-3 in 14.5 overs (Virender Sehwag 32; RP Singh 2-24) def. Mumbai Indians 92 in 19.2 overs (Harbhajan Singh 33, Rohit Sharma 29; Umesh Yadav 2-11, Shahbaz Nadeem 2-16, Morne Morkel 2-22, Ajit Agarkar 2-27) by 7 wickets.
