A thrilling third one-day international between West Indies and Australia at Arnos Vale Tuesday ended in a tie after Darren Sammy was run out with the Windies 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. The five-match series remains finely poised at one win apiece with the final two games to come in St Lucia on Friday and Sunday.

Brief Scores: Australia 220 all out (M Hussey 67, Bailey 59, Narine 3/32; West Indies 220 (Charles 45, Watson 3/30)
