Karachi: The Pakistani players and officials were shaken yesterday when a 7.4 magnitude earthquake struck Christchurch and its adjoining areas with manager Wasim Bari describing it as a terrifying experience.

"We are staying at a hotel in Nielsen, where we were playing our tour match but today when the earthquake came it was a terrifying experience as everything was shaking badly and we were safely escorted out of the hotel," Bari said from New Zealand.

"The hotel staff took great care of us and quickly evacuated us from our seventh floor rooms and have now taken us to a safe zone until the Tsunami warnings are over," he said.
