Essex were denied a place in the One-Day Cup final after Nottinghamshire pulled off a record-run chase.

It looked like The Eagles had more than enough after centuries from Alastair Cook and Captain Ryan ten Doeschate helped them set an imposing total of 370.

But Notts managed to reach their target with three balls to spare, meaning they'll now go on to play in the final at Lord's on 1 July.

Striker Joe Garner has joined Championship side Ipswich Town from Rangers for an undisclosed fee.

The 29-year-old striker has signed a three year deal with the club.

Garner moved to Rangers last summer for a reported £1.8 million and previously played for Blackburn, Nottingham Forest and Preston.

It's Town's second signing of the summer, following Jordan Spence's decision to agree a new contract.

Garner told Town's website: “I know all about the Championship. It’s the toughest league I have played in but we’ve got some good players here and I’m ready for the challenge.

“I had a great time at Rangers and got on well with the fans there but that’s behind me now. It’s a new chapter for me here.”

Essex County Cricket Club have announced their former captain Brian 'Tonker' Taylor has died at the age of 84.

He made over 500 First Class appearances for Essex between 1949-73, second only to Keith Fletcher. He was also named as the ‘Wisden Cricketer of the Year’ in 1972.

He also captained the county for seven seasons from 1967, up until he retired from cricket in 1973.

A skilled wicketkeeper, Brian has the 7th highest number of dismissals in First Class cricket with 1,295, which included over 1,000 catches and 191 stumpings; a record which is unlikely ever to be surpassed by an Essex player.

Hitting over 18,000 runs for the Club, Brian was a very popular batsman with Essex supporters playing exciting cricket with a variety of shots that led to his 'Tonker' nickname. After retiring Taylor became an England Test selector in 1973 and 74 before becoming involved in schools cricket across Essex
