List of tied One Day Internationals
There have been 27 tied One Day International cricket matches out of over 3280 played since 1971. In cricket, a One Day International (ODI) is tied if the match ends with each team having scored exactly the same number of runs and with the side batting second having completed its innings with all 10 batsmen being out or the pre-determined number of overs having been completed. In a rain-affected match, the match is tied if the Duckworth-Lewis method indicates that the second team exactly meets but does not exceed the par score. There are also two further matches where the scores ended level, but one side was declared the winner, because it lost fewer wickets.
Tied matches were relatively rare in the first two decades of ODIs. ODIs had been played for 13 years before the first tie in 1984, in the 247th ODI. There was a gap of 5 years until the second tied ODI, in 1989, in the 567th ODI. However, since 1991, a further 21 tied ODIs have occurred in approximately 2,400 matches.
Every Test-playing nation has been involved in a tied ODI except Bangladesh, with Australia involved in the most (eight) including three ties with South Africa. There has been at least one tied ODI in every Test-playing nation except Bangladesh, with the most (four) in both Australia and South Africa.
On 16 February 2006, New Zealand and the West Indies tied a Twenty20 match in Auckland, sending the game into a bowl-off. Another bowl-off was required at the 2007 Twenty20 World Championship in the group match between India and Pakistan which was tied.

He had left the field while bowling in the first innings to receive six stitches after injuring himself attempting to take a return catch. He watched from the non-strikers end as Saeed Anwar reach his century, 103 not out. A single leg bye left the scores level, but brought Akram to the stiker's end.
