Sreesanth likely to miss first three matches: DravidJaipur: Injured medium pacer S Sreesanth in all likelihood will miss the first three games of Rajasthan Royals in the fifth edition of Indian Premier League.

Sreesanth, who sustained a toe-injury is yet to recover fully and might skip the initial matches, feels skipper Rahul Dravid.

"He has still not recovered. He did bowl in the nets today but he is likely to miss first three games," Dravid said on the eve of his team`s first match against Kings XI Punjab.

Sreesanth is on a comeback trail since the toe-injury ruled him out of contention for the recently concluded tour of Australia.

Even the bowler feels that it will take some time before he gets match-fit.

"I bowled in the nets today but it was bad. I fear, I may be out of the 3-4 matches," Sreesanth said, after his team`s training session.

Apart from Sreesanth, Rajasthan Royals would also be missing the services of Shane Watson and Dinesh Chandimal. "Shane Watson is a great player and we would certainly miss him (for the time being) but we have few young exciting players and also few experienced ones like Brad Hodge and Owais Shah," said Dravid.
