Most runs by an Indian in Australia in tests
1522 runs = Sachin Tendulkar, 16 tests, 6 centuries, 5 fifties.
1081 runs = VVS Laxman, 11 tests, 4 centuries, 3 fifties.
949 runs = Rahul Dravid, 11 tests, 1 century, 5 fifties.
920 runs = Sunil Gavaskar, 11 tests, 5 centuries, 1 fifty.
750 runs = Virender Sehwag, 6 tests, 2 centuries, 2 fifties.
Most runs by an Indian in Australia in ODIs
1348 runs = Sachin Tendulkar, 40 ODI, 1 century, 10 fifties.

715 runs = Md Azharuddin, 32 ODI, 0 century, 4 fiftis.

Looking at above list, you can easily see Sachin has scored most centuries as an Indian in Australia in tests but in ODIs, interestingly, VVS Laxman has scored most centuries = 3 in total, followed by Sourav Ganguly and Gautam Gambhir who both have two each.
Now, is you ask which Indian has made most centuries in Australia, answer would be VVS Laxman and Sachin Tendulkar = 7 each.
