Written by: Staff

Kingston (Jamaica), Feb 28: Antigua and Trinidad, two countries that will host Cricket World Cup 2007 matches, were jolted on Tuesday by an early morning earthquake.

A quake with a magnitude of 5.1 on the open-ended Richter scale hit St. John's just prior to 06:00 local time (10:00 GMT) around the same time that Port-of-Spain was rattled by a quake with a magnitude of 4.3.

Disaster officials said there were no reports of injuries or damage.

Antigua is set to host Super Eight matches at the new Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, and Trinidad is the venue for four warm-up matches at the Frank Worrell Oval, as well as Group-B matches involving India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Bermuda.
