Sachin Tendulkar is one of the greatest batsmen to ever play the game. In his 22 years of professional career, he has scored runs for fun, smashed centuries like it is a "Gully Cricket" and made many records to make it impossible for the others to break it. Sachin Tendulkar holds the record for scoring the most centuries in the test format against the mighty Aussies. Steve Smith played a brilliant knock against India in the first inning of the WTC Final 2023 and climbed to the second sport right behind Tendulkar but he can break the record as he has played 38 lesser innings than him.

In 39 games, Sachin has batted 74 times vs the Aussies and scored 3630 runs. The man averages 55 and has smashed the century on 11 occasions along with sixteen 50s to his name. Steve Smith has also scored 2008 runs against India in only 36 innings. His ninth century came in the first inning of the ongoing WTC Final 2023. Virat Kohli also has the chance to extend the tally to no 9 by scoring a century in this match.

Except for Virat & Smith, everyone in the top 3 has said Goodbye to the game long ago. They have a clear opportunity to get past Sachin Tendulkar in this specific record. Sunil Gavaskar only played 31 innings against Australia but scored eight centuries to hold his ground at the fourth position. Ricky Ponting also had some crazy stats against India and there is no doubt about his existence even in this record list.
