Draw offers in other sports

The idea of the "agreed draw" is something that many believe belongs to chess, and doesn't exist in other sports. However it seems that in cricket there is something approaching this concept, as demonstrated at the conclusion of the 2nd Cricket Test between Australia and the West Indies.

When Dwayne Bravo (1) quickly followed, Australia felt it had a chance of victory but Denesh Ramdin joined Chanderpaul to see the innings through until five overs from the scheduled close when Ponting signalled he would settle for the draw.
