In the history of Test cricket, there have been just two occasions when a Test match have ended in a tie. The first game has been mentioned above when Australian team was asked to chase 233 the final innings of the game.
They were in a difficult situation as they were 92/6 before Alan Davidson and the voice of cricket Richie Benaud steered the team to a score of 226. At once, it looked like Australia will win this game but in on no time, they found themselves in trouble.
Still, they had a chance to win the game as at one point of time the scores were level with two wickets still in hands. Two successive run outs resulted in the end of Australian innings and West Indies stole a tie at the end of the day. It was the first tied Test match in the history of Test cricket.
Some 26 years later, history repeated itself as again a Test match ended in a draw. India and Australia were the two teams involved in the tied match.
