International cricket is due to resume in Southampton on Wednesday in the form of the first Test between England and the West Indies.
But, as was predicted, the poor weather has seen the toss delayed.
It meant that the Sky Sports television panel spent a large chunk of the morning's broadcast talking pitch-side.
The team at Sky then aired a five-minute segment in which West Indian great Michael Holding and World Cup winner Ebony Rainford-Brent, who was the first black woman to play for the English national side, open up on their experiences of racism in cricket.
The segment was tied to the Black Lives Matter movement and the tragic police killing of George Floyd.
After the segment was aired, the live broadcast returned to the Rose Bowl where Holding delivered another powerful message on racism.
Former England captain Nasser Hussain then also shared his experiences with racism.
The package found instant traction on social media with Holding, in particular, one of the top South African trends on Twitter.
You can watch all of the segments below, which were all shared on social media by the Sky Sports Cricket team.
