Australian Tax Office will
collect up to $A1.5m (?644,000) from their players’ match payments and tour

the players as amateurs and tax only their sponsorship deals in India. But all
entertainers and sportspeople who work in Australia have been taxed on their
earnings since July 2004.

Boxing Day Test at the
Melbourne Cricket Ground. The last time the Indian cricket team toured in the
