Sreesanth unwell, may miss first SL T20

India pacer S Sreesanth is likely to miss Wednesday's Twenty20 international against Sri Lanka because of an upset stomach.

"He is not well. We are hoping he will get well before the game," India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni said.

"I don't know the exact scene right now. The physio (Nitin Patel) told me he was not well, may be diarrhea or something," Dhoni added.

The in-form Kerala player, who did not come for the pre-match training session at the VCA's new stadium in Jamtha, returned to international cricket after 19 months in spectacular fashion, bowling India to an innings victory over the Lankans in the second of the three-Test series at Kanpur.

He played in the third and final Test, at Mumbai's Brabourne stadium, which India won by an innings to wrap the series 2-0.
