Peshawar, Sep 14 (UNI) After Tanmay Srivastava's (220) double ton, promising spinner Piyush Chawla (146) showed his prowess with the bat as the Indian under-19 team declared their first innings at a mammoth 611 for nine and then reduced Pakistan to 196 for six to tighten their grip over the second four-day match here today.
