Here’s what Australian paceman Andrew Tye told cricket.com.au outside the hotel.
“I was sitting on the end of my bed fixing a cricket bat and it felt like the bed started to move,”.
“I was like ‘what happened there’ and I looked around the room and certain things were shaking, so I thought ‘it must be an earthquake’.
“There was a bit of commotion in the hallway and we got rushed outside.
“I immediately thought back to Nepal last year around a similar sort of time.
“I know how devastating that was. I was more worried for other people rather than myself.”
