A draw in cricket is similar to a no result. Draws usually only occur in test matches, since one day matches use the duckworth Lewis system if a game can't be finished.

A draw basically means no result was reached by the end of the test match.

A tie, on the other hand, means a result was reached, but that the scores were tied.

The result of a match is a tie when the scores are equal at the conclusion of play, but only if the side batting last has completed its innings (i.e. all innings are completed, or, in limited-overs cricket, the set number of overs has been played or play is terminally stopped by weather or bad light). This is unusual, and in the history of Test cricket has happened only twice:

In some forms of one-day cricket, such as Twenty20, a Super Over is used to decide a result that would otherwise be a tie.
