Pradeep has a larger skill set (can bowl bouncer pretty well, can swing and seam it pretty well and is probably our second fastest pacer after Chameera). Chameera has that extra pace and blows short of length stuff really well but he doesn't seam or swing it as well as he could. At the moment I'd say Pradeep.

If they are both fully fit Chameera. For me I'm heavily influenced by their test performances.

In Chameera you have a strike bowler, one that can trouble the opposition and get you wickets. He just needs to stay fit, and have backing of captain on the field. You can't make people bowl faster, they even have it or not.
If you got it just utilise it well. As he get's older he will need to slowly add some variations which i'm sure will.

Pradeep has been okay without giving opposition any nightmares. Again fitness issue with him.

I would say Prasad is better than Pradeep. Again from Test match view more likely to get you a wicket, and cause some trouble to opposition.
