Brendan Taylor is bracing himself for a rowdy welcome when Nottinghamshire travel to Chelmsford to face Essex in the One-Day Cup semi-final on Friday.

Taylor scored 154 off 97 balls in a thrilling 24-run win over Somerset to help Notts progress to the last four.

The former Zimbabwe captain told BBC Radio Nottingham: "We want to field first before the beers kick in.

"But whatever we do we will have to do it very, very well. If we are not on it 110% we can be found out for sure."

Notts last won the trophy in its previous format as a 40-over competition in 2013, beating Glamorgan by 87 runs in the final at Lord's.
