Introduced by Frank Bough direct from Lord's and featuring the Gillette Cup Final: Gloucestershire v Sussex
Outside broadcast cameras are at Lord's to bring you the action, excitement and atmosphere of one of cricket's great occasions. All 25,000 tickets were sold out months ago for the Final of this 60-overs-a-side knockout competition.
Gloucestershire are in a knockout Cup Final for the first time. South African all-rounder Mike Procter, whose performance was largely responsible for their narrow semi-final win over Worcestershire, could be their key player.
Sussex, winners of the Cup in 1963 and 1964, are making a record-breaking fifth appearance in the Final. John Snow and Tony Greig (above) lead their challenge for a third win.
The Gillette Cup Final is being shown on BBC2 from 4.40 pm

Written and presented by Ludovic Kennedy
In December 1943 the most successful warship in the German Navy was sunk, off the North Cape of Norway, by the guns and torpedoes of the British Fleet. So ended a career during which the German battleship had sunk an aircraft carrier, an armed merchant cruiser, two destroyers and well over 100,000 tons of merchant shipping.
Tonight Ludovic Kennedy (whose father commanded HMS Rawalpindi, the first ship sunk by the Scharnhorst) tells the story of the battleship's four years of war. The programme includes participants in both navies and remarkable film shot at the time.
"The film is super" (Sunday Times) "A dramatic, moving tale" (Observer)
