    the visiting Sri Lankans, starting at the
    Arbab Niaz Stadium, Peshawar on Sunday.
    Anwar, talking to a group of journalists at a reception last night said he was confident his team would win the second test and take the series into the final test, weather permitting.
    Persistent rain and overcast conditions
    have lead to a wet outfield however ground
    staff have been working hard throughout the
    night to keep water away from the square.
    "We showed signs of our form in Pindi,and we
    are in a positive frame of mind for the game.
    Winning and losing is part and parcel of cricket, but I am pleased at the way my
    team came back on the last three days of the game"
    Anwar said he was confident his team would
    be able to level the series in Peshawar even without the services of Wasim Akram.
