From Riyan Parag to Rahul Chahar, top five young faces from this year's IPL

We take a look at the five stand-out young guns from IPL 2019. The list doesn't include the likes of Prithvi Shaw and Jofra Archer as they have already done enough to make a mark for themselves in the global game. Credit: Firstpost

Shubman Gill (Kolkata Knight Riders)

Matches 14 | Runs 296 | Average 32.88 | Strike Rate 124.36 | 50s 3 | Best 76 Where better to begin, than the official Emerging Player of IPL 2019. Numerically, Gill's maiden IPL campaign from last year reads better (average 33.83, strike rate 146.04), but for impact "and future glimpse" this season was much more valuable for the 19-year-old. A 65 off 39 against Delhi Capitals laid a platform which his teammates didn't make use of, a 45-ball 76 set KKR on their way to a gigantic total versus Mumbai Indians, and an unbeaten 65 off 49 marshalled a successful chase in a must-win against Kings XI Punjab.
