"Normally, we don't have the practice of printing any particular cricketer's photograph in a match ticket. But this is a special and emotional occasion as well. Therefore we would like to seek BCCI's permission if we can use any action photograph of Tendulkar at the Eden Gardens. Once we get the permission, we will issue print order," Dey told PTI on Thursday. (Suggested read: Eden promises to make Sachin Tendulkar's 199th 'extra special')
