"We are looking to play positively. The batsmen at the crease were looking positive. We want to go for the win tomorrow," Pradeep said after the day's play.
The fast bowler, who was injured after the first match in Galle, said he was happy to see a green pitch on his return to playing XI in this ongoing third Test.
"I had a full week to recover. So I was fit and got back into the playing XI here. It was good to see a green pitch here. It encourages you, but you have to bowl in the right areas to use this pitch," said Pradeep.
