VIDEO: Gillespie's verdict on Sussex v Essex at Eastbourne

It was a great day for cricket fans as Sussex made their annual visit to Eastbourne - but sadly it ended in defeat for Jason Gillespie's men.

Their loss to Essex saw them slip out of contention in the Royal London One Day Cup although they had been in the game for much of the contest.
