Magnitude 5.2 earthquake felt during U-19 WC match
An earthquake was felt at the Queen's Park Oval on Saturday during the Plate semi-final match of the U-19 cricket World Cup between Zimbabwe and Ireland.
The 5.2 magnitude earthquake's tremors, occurred during the sixth over of Zimbabwe's innings, did not interrupt the match, however.
Ireland U-19 captain Tim Tector told the media that he and his teammates did not feel the quake while on the field.
"No, we actually didn't [feel the tremors]. We were fielding at the time and we didn't know anything had happened. I think 'cause we were on grass, so it [tremors] didn't transfer to us.
"But apparently, all the coaching staffs and commentators heard it as well. I mean, I heard it was 5.2 on the Richter scale, it was pretty big but no, we didn't hear it," informed Tector.
The front-on tv camera captured the evidence and had shaken considerably for a while but the broadcast also went on without interruption following the incident as Ireland beat Zimbabwe by eight wickets.
