Chasing 157 runs for victory, Mumbai were helped by their captain Rohit Sharma, who hit 68 runs off 51 balls.
Ishan Kishan remained unbeaten on 33 as Mumbai got home with eight balls to spare.
Trent Boult was the star with the ball in hand, picking up 3 for 30, including two wickets in his first two overs with the new ball.
For Delhi, captain Shreyas Iyer scored 65 off 50 balls while Rishabh Pant made 56 to help their side recover from 22 for 3 at one stage to post a competitive 156 for 7 in their 20 overs.
However, Mumbai never allowed Delhi to get back into the match with the ball as Quinton de Kock launched an onslaught right from the first over as Mumbai scored 33 off the first three.
De Kock scored 20 off 12 while Suryakumar Yadav got 19 off 20. Rohit played the anchor at the other hand and stitched crucial partnerships with de Kock, Suryakumar and Kishan to help Mumbai cruise to the target.
