The penultimate match of this year's John Player League, and although the standard of both batting and bowling throughout the season has been high, it is the quality of the fielding which could decide where the trophy is to go. Commentators JIM LAKER

Polish television makes some of the best programmes to be seen anywhere in Eastern Europe. Standards of music and drama are particularly high-most of the country's top feature film directors, trained in one of the best film schools in the world, frequently work for television. As in every Communist country, however, television in Poland is an arm of the State - and the Party considers it a vital organ of information and propaganda.
Yet in the last year, since the creation of the Solidarity Trade Union, there have been fundamental changes in television - particularly in the areas of news and current affairs - the like of which have never been seen before in any Eastern bloc country. Under a new law which came into force this week many programmes on television need not even be submitted to the state censor; and if a journalist feels he has been unjustly censored, he can take the censor to a special court.
What is emerging on the television screens as a result is a more truthful coverage of Poland's problems and daily crises. Reporter Philip Tibenham

The Cinema of Andrzej Wajda
I simply want to make cinema. That these films might have political or historical references is conditioned by the fact that I live in this and not any other country.' For 25 years the Polish film director ADRZEJ WAJDA has been making some of the most exciting and boldly critical films in Eastern Europe. He was filmed in Warsaw and Cracow shortly after he had returned from the Cannes Film Festival, where he won the Palm d'Or. How has he managed, in a long career in film and theatre, not to be silenced by censorship? How does he view his films, and his obsession with Polish history, in the urgent mood of today?
From the post-war disillusion and despair of Ashes and Diamonds in 1958 to Man of Iron, which centres on the days of hope in the Cdansk shipyards last year, Wajda looks back on his career as a film-maker, and questions some of- the attitudes of his times.

A feature film continuing the Polish theme starring Zbigniew Zapasiewicz Ewa Dalkowska
Jerzy is a political journalist who feels sufficiently- secure of his reputation to state his own views in a television interview. It is a mistake. In the next few weeks he loses all the trappings of his success, including his wife and child.
' I worked on this film in a blind
rage,' said Andrzej Wajda at its premiefe. ' It has no flourishes.' What it had, however, was enormous impact, having escaped the censorship which afflicted the director's Man of Marble, charting the inevitable destruction of the successful man who steps out of the party line.
