Volume is just the amount of space something occupies. It has nothing to do with it's moisture content.

1m3 of water has 100% moisture content.
1m3 of sand probably has less than 5% moisture content.

Both occupy a volume of 1m3.

Correct but the weight would be different between water and sand and water

For the Ashes, England has to play Anderson and Woakes along with anyone who can move the ball in the air. The limp wristed and spineless Australian top/middle order are absolutely useless when the ball is doing a bit, and will fold like a deck of cards. England could bat reverse order and still be fine, you'd only be chasing 30.
I predict another series whitewash, and I'm Australian. On fairly flat bouncy wickets in Australia it might be different, but our blokes just don't have the patience, concentration or balls to tough it out and wait for the conditions to suit them.

Thanks. My main gripe is that the Juniors bowled pretty well and got whipped in a way that could discourage them from making the move to senior matches.

My G1+ v1000 has arrived for £113. It is 2lb 10.5oz

See https://photos.app.goo.gl/8PqDPE4bCUgC4kon6

13 ish straight grains and no blemishes.

Massive edges at 46mm (illegal!) and high spine (possibly also illegal) plus some concaving. The face is totally flat and the toe completely square. Gives the impression of a very wide bat.

I would say not very soft pressed as I'm not getting big marks from knocking with an old ball on a string. Certainly nothing like as soft as my Mrf  grand edition match bat or an Adidas xt black that I have for sale. These took many many hours to knock in.

I'm liking the pick up and look off this bat. I may keep it for myself for when the Mrf gives up.

Very impressive for the price. I'd love to compare with the G3 version. I'm guessing the edges will be smaller on the g3.

Calculate volume by weight and moisture

Well, if the alternative is Sam Curran at 5 or 6?

Ideally no. Maybe Root moves down one or Roy bat's five, depends who you go for. But... Go for someone, bacause we won't play six bowlers in the Ashes, and it'd be better to look at someone who might fill that gap. Even if the first test side is fixed, you don't know what will happen, so give the next cab a bit of experience.
Curran (or Woakes) at 6 makes some sense, because that's potentially only one Stokes injury away anyway, but having no number 5 bat and giving Lewis Gregory a random game instead of testing out the next batsman in is bizarre. Can't see how we're not going to call up another batsman at some stage in the Ashes, so given the chance it's daft not to give Sibley (or whoever) a run out first.

I want to believe in Hameed, but it just doesnít seem to be happening. Indeed it may not happen until he changes county/dumps his dad as coach.

I still think Malan deserves another couple of chances. Mind you, Iím still touting this mental Ashes XI:

Roy
Bairstow
Woakes
Root
Malan
Stokes
Foakes
Ali
Rashid
Archer
Anderson

Roy and Bairstow opening with Woakes at 3, that's mental enough...but only two quicks plus Stokes and two spinners?? Even more mental! Not even got to no Butler yet!  :D
