Draw won't cost Rams title chance
RORY Burns insists he isn't worried after Banstead dropped down to third in the Premier Division table, believing the Rams' losing draw will not cost them the title.
Banstead amassed a decent 284-6 batting first against Guildford in the Surrey Championship.
But, with the home side being restricted to 20 overs due to rain, Guildford's 91-2 was enough to bag them a winning draw.
But Surrey professional Burns, who top scored against Guildford with 137, believes it will be wins that secure the Premier Division title.

"We dominated most of the game, so it was disappointing. But there is nothing you can do about the weather," Burns mused.
"The top three teams are all within a couple of points of each other.
"I think at the end of the season it will be the team that wins the most games that wins the league, especially now with 13 points for a win."
This weekend, the Rams host Sunbury who are just below them in the league, but Burns is confident.
A victory for Sunbury would them above Banstead.
"That won't happen, because we'll beat Sunbury," the batsman boasted.
"We are batting and bowling well at the moment – we are on a roll."
And Burns put the Rams' form this season down to the team "taking things more seriously".
"We were all about having fun in previous seasons, but this year we want to enjoy it, but also win games and hopefully the league," he said.
