The first Test match between India and Australia will be played in Adelaide from Thursday. Just before this, in an interview given to TimesOfIndia.com, he told about his favorite test century against Australia. He has described his innings of 114 runs played in Perth in 1992 as his best century.
He said, “My favorite century is an innings of 114 runs played in Perth in 1992, because I was just 19 at the time (Sachin Tendulkar was 18 years and 285 days at that time).” Please tell that Sachin Tendulkar became the youngest batsman to score a Test century on a waka pitch.

Master Blaster said, “It is a great thing for a 19-year-old youth to visit Australia and score a century against his international bowling attack.” I also scored a century (148 not out) in Sydney on that tour. It was a different experience to score a century on both these grounds.
It is notable that Sachin played 39 Tests against Australia in his 24-year career. During this period, he scored the most 11 centuries and scored 3630 runs.
