Pacers Dushmantha Chameera and Lahiru Gamage have been added to the Sri Lankan squad ahead of the third Test against India starting in Pallekele on Saturday.
Pradeep pulled up his hamstring during the second Test and did not bowl after the first day while Herath was ruled out after a back injury as he complained about stiffness in his back. Chameera, who last played a Test match against New Zealand last december, has 22 wickets from six matches.
The hosts, who now trail the three-match series 0-2 having lost the first two Tests, will try to save some pride against the Virat Kohli-led side in the final match.
