Yorkshire produced a stunning come from behind victory over Essex at Chelmsford to reach the semi-finals of the Royal London one-day Cup and win for the fifth time in a row.

The buoyant Vikings travel to Hampshire on Monday (11am) having defended a 260 target, recovering from early strife with the bat at 45-4.

The pitch looked good, but both sides struggled on a sluggish surface offering some uneven bounce.

Essex slipped to 74-4 in the 21st over of their reply to 259-7 and were bowled out for 234 with five balls to spare. Adam Wheater top-scored with 78.

Captain Steve Patterson was exceptional for 4-36 from 10, as were all the White Rose bowlers.

Gary Ballance top-scored with 91, while Jack Leaning made 57. They shared a superb 129 for the fifth wicket before Tim Bresnan and Matthew Fisher added a swashbuckling 71 for the seventh wicket.
