The country´s minister for regional Australia Simon Crean will do the honours.
The Order of Australia was conferred on the star batsman by Australian prime minister Julia Gillard during her October visit to India. Gillard had said Sachin was as admired in Australia as in India.
The decision had triggered a considerable amount of criticism Down Under.
Former Australian cricketer Matthew Hayden said such honours should be reserved for Australians and Sachin should not get it.
