How to interact with buttons in ExtJS’s MessageBox element?

I have a Ext.MessageBox which appears when user clicks a button on my desired url.

Ext.MessageBox.confirm('Confirm', 'Are you sure you want to do that?',function(btnText){
        if(btnText === "no"){

        else if(btnText === "yes"){
             // Do Something
    }, this);

I want to test ‘yes’ and ‘no’ buttons on this message window. As I have no id set for it can anyone tell me how to access these buttons?

I tried something like

WebElement y = driver.findElement(By.xpath("//a[2]/span/span/span[2]"));

But it didn’t work. I have checked other similar questions on stack overflow as well but it didn’t wok for me. Kindly help.

WebDriverWait wait = new WebDriverWait(driver, 10);
WebElement yesButton = wait.until(
