Cricket-Australia and West Indies in thrilling tie

March 20 (Reuters) - Australia and West Indies played out a thrilling tie in the third one-day international at Kingstown in St Vincent on Tuesday.

Australian fast bowler Brett Lee ran out West Indian tail-ender Darren Sammy in the final over to leave the teams deadlocked after an enthralling match that left their five-match series level at 1-1.

Mike Hussey (67) and George Bailey (59) scored half-centuries for Australia before the touring side suffered a late batting collapse and were bowled out for just 220.

The West Indies looked to be in deep trouble when they slumped to 78 for five in the 21st over and 190 for eight in the 45th before their lower order knuckled down and got their side to 220 as well.
