Pietersen ensured Delhi had no trouble reaching their paltry target of 126 against the reigning Indian Premier League kings, who remain rooted to the foot of the standings after a nightmare start.

The damage was done in the first half of the match as Mumbai failed to recover from 46 for four after winning the toss, posting just 125 for six in Sharjah.

Kieron Pollard top-scored from No 6 with 33 not out and left-arm medium-pacer Jaydev Unadkat was the pick of the Delhi attack with two for 29.

Murali Vijay led from the front in reply, posting a composed 40 off 34 balls to put the Daredevils well in touch with the required-rate.

Pietersen took six balls before making his move, launching opposite number Rohit Sharma for a huge six down the ground before following that blow up with back-to-back boundaries.

He allowed team-mate Kedar Jadhav the honour of sealing the win, a victory which keeps Delhi in sixth with two wins from five matches.
