Pakistan safe after earthquake jolts Jamaica

An earthquake of a magnitude of 7.2 hit Jamaica according to the US Geological Survey

The Pakistan cricket team who are currently playing a Test against West Indies at Sabina Park, Jamaica are believed to be safe and sound after an earthquake of the magnitude of 7.2 hit the country according to the US Geological Survey. 

The PCB took to social media to announce that their players are safe and the start of Day Three will begin as scheduled. 

"Thankfully, our men's side are safe and sound after this morning’s earthquake in Jamaica and are ready for the third day of the ongoing Test, which will start on time," the tweet said.

West Indies have taken a slender 34-run lead in the match so far, after bowling out Pakistan for 217. Skipper Kraigg Brathwaite (97) and Jason Holder (58) were the standout performers with the bat on Day Two.

As far as Pakistan's bowling is concerned, Mohammad Abbas, who made early inroads into the West Indies innings has three wickets to his name, while Shaheen Afridi has a couple. 

West Indies will resume Day Three on 251 for 8 with Joshua Da Silva (20*) and Jomel Warrican (1*) at the crease. This series is part of the new World Test Championship (WTC) cycle - the first one for both sides.
