An earthquake off the coast of where England are staying in Antigua ahead of the first ODI against the West Indies disturbed several players in the early hours on the eve of the match.
Allrounder Will Jacks was not one of the tourists woken by an earthquake registering 5.2 on the Richter scale 80km to the south east of the Caribbean island at 4:48am, but revealed how several teammates described their rooms shaking in the minutes afterwards.
There was brief concern that what happened could trigger a tsunami but no damage has been reported.
"I actually wasn't woken up," Jacks said. "I woke up about 6am, saw the messages on the group and couldn't really believe it.
"Some of the guys said their whole room was shaking and everything so it's a bit weird.
"I'm quite a deep sleeper. I don't wake up for anything. Harry Brook messaged me saying, 'is there going to be a tsunami?' But it's all good now."
West Indies captain Shai Hope said: "I didn't wake up, but I felt something. It's just nature. You can't control it.
"It's not like a hurricane, you get some warning, but you've just got to hope it's not too serious."
The first of three ODIs takes place at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium on Sunday morning (Monday AEDT).
