    Icon5 Ties in Tests

    I have heard that there have been only 2 ties in the history of international Test Cricket. Is that true?

    No one ever talks about 'the weak, silent type'. When's their moment?

    Oh, the 2nd one is interesting. Australia declared twice, and too early. In this case, a win should be given to Australia, because they declared.
    And follow-on should be allowed if the batting-first side is leading even 1 run. If Australia had chosen follow-on, Australia could have won.
    So the 1st one is the only real tie in Test Cricket.

    There's no reason why they couldn't catch on.
