Chandimal: "Much better now. Was a tough time for me and my family, the last 10 days. India played really good cricket in Galle but you just have to take the positives out of the game. As a batter, if you get a start, you need to score big guns, like Shikhar did in the first game. Bowlers need to stick to their plans. Looks like a dry surface but looking forward to keeping them to a minimum. We have three changes: myself, Malinda Pushpakumara will make his debut today, and Dhananjaya de Silva."
Kohli: "Always feels good to win the toss. We will bat first. The surface looks nice and rolled in, plus some grass to keep it together. We have recovered well and understood the importance of rest, too. The practice sessions have been short and sharp, and we are very well prepared going into this Test.
