It meant Sussex failed to qualify for the knockout stages of the Royal London One-Day Cup.

Evans was delighted by his knock but disappointed it had not contributed to a victory. Afterwards he spoke to Sussex Cricket about the innings, how Sussex need to learn from the defeat, and his hopes for the rest of the season.
