Dhoni and his men may play T20 in Tihar jail next week

After entertaining crowds in every part of the cricket globe, India's cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and some of his teammates may turn up in Tihar jail next week for a Twenty20 tournament involving the inmates.

According to a Tihar jail source, the jail authorities have approached Dhoni, Gautam Gambhir, Yuvraj Singh and Ajay Jadeja to turn up for the Twenty20 Tihar Winter Olympics Cricket Tournament's final next week.

Among them, Dhoni and Gambhir have expressed their interest to be part of the event, though they have still not confirmed their participation.

"We have approached these players and are now waiting for their confirmation. We can only tell you the details only after we get their approval", the source said.

The participating teams are made of Tihar prisoners and the cricketers would only play a few overs to encourage them, the source said. If the jail authorities manage to rope in the star players, each of the four participating teams will have at least one professional cricketer in its ranks.

Back in 1994, Sachin Tendulkar played cricket in Tihar while World Cup winning captain Kapil Dev has also played there on a few occasions.
