Tie (draw)

A draw or tie occurs in a competitive sport when the results are identical or inconclusive. Ties or draws are possible in some, but not all, sports and games. Such an outcome, sometimes referred to as deadlock, can occur in politics, business, and wherever there are different factions regarding an issue.


Tie is usually used in North America, whereas draw is usual elsewhere. In cricket, a draw and a tie are two different things.
