    导出博客文章All members of the Pakistan cricket team are safe in Nelson after an earthquake
    of high intensity hit New Zealand, their manager Wasim Bari has confirmed.
    Pakistan were in Nelson to play a three-day tour game before the first Test,
    scheduled to begin in Christchurch on November 17. The epicentre of the quake
    was 200km away, also on the South Island, but it was so strong - 7.5 on Richter
    Scale - that tremors were felt across the country.The Pakistan womens team, who
    are also touring New Zealand, was even closer, staying on the 13th floor of a
    hotel in Christchurch. Basit Ali, their manager, told Geo News that they were
    all safe but still scared.The earthquake struck late on Sunday evening. We felt
    the first tremors around 11.30pm, Bari, the former Pakistan wicketkeeper, told
    ESPNcricinfo. Some of the boys were in prayer, some were watching the
    India-England Test on TV when we felt the windows shake. The whole room began to
    shake. We were on the sixth and seventh floor, and evacuated immediately. The
    hotel staff was very helpful. We are all safe.By around 1am on Monday morning,
    having walked around outdoors for a bit, the team moved back to the reception.
    They had not yet got the clearance to go back up to the higher floors. There
    have been aftershocks too, Bari said.The east coast of New Zealands South Island
    is on a tsunami alert with people being asked to move either inland or to higher
    buildings if they cant travel inland. Nelson is at the northern tip of the South
    Island, but the Pakistan team remains aware of the tsunami risk.Pakistan were
    supposed to travel to Christchurch on Monday, but their plans are now uncertain.
    This being the middle of the night, there had been no communication between the
    Pakistan team and the NZC, but NZCs liaison officer has been with the team
    through the ordeal, Bari said.The epicentre of the earthquake was at a depth of
    about 5km, about 40km from the town of Amberley, which in turn is only about
    90km north-north-east of Christchurch, which was devastated by an earthquake in
    2011. Whether the city will be able to host the Test beginning on Thursday will
    only be known once the damage is assessed properly on Monday morning.
