The El Classic of the IPL will bring down curtains on the 2019 season at Hyderabad. Chennai Super Kings take on table toppers from the league phase, Mumbai Indians, on Sunday at Hyderabad in the finals of the season in what is touted to be a humdinger.

This season, Mumbai won all of their three matches against CSK, including the qualifiers.
Weather and Pitch conditions: The Hyderabad pitch is expected to be a belter, especially batting first. Teams have fared well batting first with an average total of 175.
