Members of Indian Premier League side Gujarat Lions evacuated their team hotel after multiple tremors were felt across North India on Sunday. The earthquake’s epicenter lay in the Hindkush mountain region along the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan. The first tremors were felt at 3.58 PM local time and measured 6.8 on the Richter scale.

The tremors were felt in Chandigarh where Lions are stationed before facing Kings XI Punjab on Monday at the PCA Stadium. (Fixtures | Squads)

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.”
