Windies force tie
?GROS ISLET – Jason Holder helped West Indies mark the occasion of their 700th One-Day International with a tie against Pakistan here yesterday.
Holder collected 12 off Wahab Riaz from the last three balls of the third match in the series at the Beausejour Cricket Ground as the Windies narrowly failed to overtake an average target of 230 from their 50 overs.
The home team required 15 from the final over and Holder drove the third ball from Wahab through extra cover for four and hit the left-arm fast bowler inside-out over the same area for six from the fifth ball to bring a crowd of around 3 000 to its feet.
Trying to hit the winning runs off the final delivery from Wahab, he got an edge to third man and scrambled two runs with Kemar Roach, who was not out on six, to formalize the result. (JG)?
