Warwickshire will continue their mission to claim the treble with a Royal London One-Day Cup semi-final against Kent at Edgbaston.

The Bears have already won the NatWest T20 Blast this season under their Birmingham banner and sit just 21 points behind LV=County Championship leaders Yorkshire with three games remaining in the four-day season.

The other semi-final will see Durham take on Nottinghamshire at Chester-le-Street on September 6

Kent will go into the last-four clash in the midlands on September 4 with plenty of confidence after beating Gloucestershire by 24 runs in their quarter-final on Friday night.

"Edgbaston is one of the great grounds to play at in England," skipper Rob Key told Sky Sports 2. "They are good but so are Notts, so are Durham and when you get to the knockout phase then you face the best.

"I think we've got every chance."

Nottinghamshire, who are the current holders of the one-day trophy - although last season's tournament had a 40-over format - are eyeing a double as they trail Yorkshire by just six points in the Championship while Durham are in the midst of a relegation battle.
