Undoubtedly, it will be one of Sachin Tendulkar's most significant moments concerning the southern hemisphere country. Australia's Prime Minister Julia Gillard announced the honour on a recent trip to New Delhi.

Tendulkar has enjoyed a special relationship with Australia. At the Sydney Cricket Ground on India's 1991-92 tour, he became the youngest player to score a Test century in Australia. He followed that up with an amazing hundred in the final Test at Perth in conditions more suited to bowlers.

Tendulkar made five Test tours to Australia with only the latest being a disappointment on the batting front. In 1988, he visited Sir Don Bradman at his home in Adelaide to greet him on his 90th birthday.
