DUBAI (Agencies) - Misbah-ul Haq will look for an improved performance from his fielders to menace Sri Lanka in the second Test which starts at Dubai Sports City Stadium from Wednesday (today). Pakistan snatched a draw from the jaws of a win by dropping as many as seven catches to let the Sri Lankans off in the first Test in Abu Dhabi last week, leaving the three-Test series tied. Led by left-arm paceman Junaid Khan (5-38), Pakistan rocked Sri Lanka to a low score of 197 after Misbah won the toss and elected to field and then took a huge 314-run lead on the back of a career-best 236 from Taufiq Umar. But then the fielders spoiled a good chance of winning the first Test by droppingsix catches on the fourth day allowing opener Lahiru Thirimanne (68) and Kumar Sangakkara five chances between them. Sangakkara, who notched 211, then punished Pakistan for their sloppy fielding by putting together a record 201-run stand for the sixth wicket with Prasanna Jayawardene who scored 120 to salvage a draw for Sri Lanka. Misbah hoped his players will work hard to overcome fielding weaknesses. "Slip catching is all about confidence, just like batting. We are really looking forward to doing a lot of practice, and forget the fielding effort in the first match and just go out for a win," said Misbah. Since Misbah took over in the post spot-fixing scandal in England last year, which ended in bans for former Test captain Salman Butt, Pakistan have not lost a series and the skipper feels the Abu Dhabi draw is not going to affect them. "Nobody's down," said Misbah when asked if the players dejected after spoiling a good chance. Misbah said his players have practiced fielding drills. "After such a (bad) performance in the field, we got two days so we have worked really hard on that, lets hope for the best in the second Test," said Misbah, who played down a slight niggle to Umar Gul. "Guls ok, a little bit of stiffness, but no problem. We have all 15 players available for selection." Pakistan may bring in experienced paceman Wahab Riaz in place of Aizaz Cheema who managed just two wickets in the first Test. Misbah agreed the Dubai pitch will have more bounce. "The last time when we played here, it had a bit more turn and a bit more bounce, but I dont know how it will be this time. But as the match progresses, it gives more turn and bounce so it's different from Abu Dhabi," he added. Pakistan held off a stiff challenege from South Africa in Dubai -- the first-ever Test at the venue last year -- after being set a big 381-run target. Sri Lanka can also bring in off-spinner Suraj Randiv in place of any of the two seamers Nuwan Pradeep or Suranga Lakmal if the Dubai stadium pitch has any chance to help the spinners. Captain Tillakaratne Dilshan said his team will have the psychological advantage after avoiding defeat in the first match. "I think it's (draw) a huge advantage for us. We were well behind in the match and survived and since this is a long series we have to come strongly in each match," said Dilshan took over in May last year as a captain and Sri Lanka have not won a single Test, losing 1-0 to both England and Australia in each of the three-Test series. Dilshan hoped his batsmen put up a better show in the first innings. "We were bowled out for under 200 runs and it was very difficult to come back and win the match," said Dilshan of the Abu Dhabi Test. "We have to come strongly in the second Test, especially the first innings we have to put runs on the board so that this young bowling attack has some confidence to bowl. We can't ask them to bowl with just 200 runs. Dilshan was worried about his own batting form, after having scored just one half-century in the last four Tests. "Yes, it's a worry but I am sure that I can get runs in the middle order and I look forward to that in the second Test, because five-day cricket needs everyone to perform," said Dilshan. The third Test will be played in Sharjah from November 3-7. Dilshan hopes his batsmen pull up their socks and score big in the first innings after being bowled out for a mere 197 in the first Test which ended in a draw at Abu Dhabi last week. It needed Kumar Sangakkara's brilliant 211 and Prasanna Jayawardene's fighting 120 to save Sri Lanka from defeat, but not before Pakistani's fielders dropped as many as seven catches. Dilshan said he hopes for a better batting show. "We had discussions on which area to improve and did that in training sessions. As a batting unit we are fully prepared to do well in this Test," said Dilshan. "Confidence is really high the way we made a comeback (against Sri Lanka) and did so many things to save it," said Dilshan.
