We have asked the owners of the Gujarat Lions team, having its headquarter in Kanpur, to pay 6 per cent entertainment tax for the five matches played last year in Rajkot," the collector said.

"The district authority also asked the team owners to provide details of the ticket sale this year, as they have played five matches this season at Khandheri stadium," he said.
