After the T20 series between Australia and India ending at 1-1, next up is the 4 match Test series. The first India Australia Test match dates back to November 1947. Since then, both the teams have played each other 94 times in Test matches with the Aussies winning 41 of them. India has emerged victorious on 26 occasions while 1 match ended in a tie.

The Test matches between these two teams have witnessed a lot of great moments like VVS Laxman's 281 in the second Test match at Eden Gardens in 2001 which turned around the entire series in favour India, a triple hundred by Michael Clarke and the hat trick by Harbhajan Singh to name a few.

India-Australia Test matches have also witnessed controversies, the most infamous being the Monkeygate scandal in 2007-08 edition of the Border Gavaskar Trophy. However, when one talks about India vs Australia Test matches, one cannot ignore Sachin Tendulkar. No player has ever dominated the Aussies like him.

Tendulkar scored a total of 3630 runs against the Aussies in Test matches, the most runs scored by a player whenever these two teams met. He scored 11 centuries and 16 half-centuries against them which again is the most by any batsman in India Australia Test matches.

So what do the numbers say? Let us take a look at them.
