Pakistan's one-day and Test captain Misbah-ul Haq yesterday said that he was pleased with his team's progress in fielding and fitness, as they prepare for next month's tour of Sri Lanka.

Misbah, who turns 38 later this month, is one of the best fielders in the team but Pakistan's overall standard is well short of top teams like Australia, England and their upcoming opponents Sri Lanka.

Pakistan beat Sri Lanka 1- nil in Tests and 4-1 in the one-day series in the UAE last year but their last tour to the island in 2009 ended in defeats in both forms of the game.

Pakistan will play two T20s, five one-day internationals and three Tests on the tour, starting with a T20 in Hambantota on June 1st.
