Kingstown: Mar 22, 2012

A thrilling third One-Day International (ODI) between West Indies and Australia ended in a tie after Darren Sammy was run out with the hosts needing just one run from the last three balls to win.

Sammy had hit a boundary off the previous delivery to take West Indies to 220 with one wicket remaining, but a horrible mix-up with Kemar Roach led to Sammy being run out by Brett Lee as the Australians celebrated securing a rare tie.

But the Windies had reason to be happy too, having earlier appeared up against it at 78 for five, and the five-match series remains finely poised at one win apiece with the final two games to come tomorrow and on Sunday.

“I think we believed we could beat them,” said Sammy.

“We should have won. Everyone played their part. I won t lay blame on anyone, it s just a shame we couldn t see out the win,” he said (AFP)
