The Big Picture will take extremely high-resolution 360-degree photos of the stadium three times every day across the five days of the Test match. It will be taking the photograph of the fans in the entire stadium during special moments.

Ajit Mohan, head of digital business at Star India, says: "The response from the fans has been overwhelming. We are delighted that our tribute to Sachin has struck a chord."

Fans present in the stadium can visit picture.starsports.com and search for themselves within the photographs, zoom into the photo and tag themselves on it after logging in via their Facebook account.
