KINGSTOWN – West Indies and Australia played to a dramatic tie in the third Digicel One-Day International, in a thrilling finish to a riveting contest at Arnos Vale Sports Complex yesterday.
Needing one run from the last three balls of the match to reach their target of 221, the last-wicket pair of captain Darren Sammy (10) and Kemar Roach (nine not out) hesitated over a quick single and found themselves stranded at virtually the same end.
Starting the nerve-wracking last over requiring seven for victory, West Indies scrambled singles from the first two deliveries before Sammy slammed the third from fast bowler Brett Lee to the wide long-on boundary, to bring the scores level.
Sammy then squirted the fourth ball to point and held his ground while Roach set off for a near impossible single. In the end, Sammy found himself quarter of a way down the pitch when Lee took the bails off at the bowlers’ end.
