and it's raining. Hoping for play later but what a typically British start to the series.

It did give time for a very powerful interview with Michael Holding, Nasser Hussein and Ebony Rainford-Brent. 

 

Really brilliant piece that. Not just the video but the talk afterwards was spot on. Insightful, educational and very needed for some people in cricket to hear. 

For those who missed it, this is the first bit. Most of the conversation afterwards has also been posted on Sky's cricket twitter page.

It was utterly brilliant, heart-wrenching stuff.

I wonder if they’ll play crowd noise at Derbyshire games.

it'll make a change from beer bottles popping and curry recipes being passed about.

They ARE the natural crowd noises at Derbyshire - I seem to hear them all the time for some reason.

I love test cricket when it's like this. Good bowling and batsmen having to work for it.

As do I. When i used to play I loved not getting out as much as scoring runs which isn't ideal in 40 over cricket.

I used to score reasonably quickly, as you had to, but I secretly loved batting out for a draw or those April games on a slow green pitch chasing 70 and my 35 not out of as many overs would be enough to win.
