Whereas, the Yellow Army who had parked themselves at the top of the IPL 2019 points table for quite some time, would want to end the IPL 2019 league stage in a similar fashion. The last time the two teams met at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad, the hosts walked away with a six-wicket victory. All thanks to David Warner and Jonny Bairstow who made 50 and 61 runs respectively as they chased the total of 132 runs.
