Pradeep was born in Colombo on the 7th of December 1978. He is a stylish right-handed opening batsman, and a useful medium pacer. He was educated at St Benedict's College, Kotahena. The same school that the now famous TV Commentator, and cricket administrator, Ranjith Fernando came from. Pradeep's whole family have been involved in cricket. He made his first class debut in the domestic scene in 1994. He became the "Schoolboy Cricketer of the year" in 1998 and went on to captain the U19 team in the 1998 World Cup in South Africa. He batted superbly in the tournament and was adjudicated as the best batsman. On his return the selectors included him in the Sri Lankan Squad against New Zealander. Unfortunately Pradeep did not get the chance to represent the country. He remains a member of the 'A' squad and recently played against Zimbabwe 'A', scoring a century in the first unofficial test match at Kurunegala. Also he is captain the Sri Lanka Colts XI against England tour to Sri Lanka in 2000-01 at Moratuwa.
