House has decided to hang up his spikes

The 26-year-old has decided to work in the finance industry in London after seeing his chances in the game limited.

"I've had three great years with Sussex and loved every minute," said House, who will continue to live in Brighton.

"I'm sure I'll miss cricket and the camaraderie of the team but now feels the right time to move on with the next phase of my life.

"Tonight will always remain in my memory as a very special game, and it was particularly nice to score the winning runs with a six."

Sussex coach Peter Moores said: "It is always a sad time when a cricketer decides to call it a day."
