The Gladiators amassed 138 for seven – probably an above-par score for a 15-over innings. Will Beer (2-21) was the pick of the Sharks bowlers.

But the Sussex batsmen couldn’t reach the target, ending on 125 all out with two balls to spare. Matt Machan (28) and Chris Nash (25) were their top scorers.

It saw Sussex slip back out of the top four – from where teams will qualify for the quarter-finals – and they will need to get back to winning ways when they host Kent next Friday (July 11).
