As per the law 5 the-bat with appendix-B pertaining to the materials in handle, the researcher quantified the use of non-wood materials other than cane, wood or twin is only one-tenth part from the total volume of the handle. The experiment carried out on Grade 'A' handles, was short in size and round in shape, made up of finest quality of Singapore cane or Rattan Manau (Calamus Manan) four pieces of laminated with 3 rubber insertions. A referenced cricket bat handle was used that is constraint by its geometrical parameters. The aims of this study were to experimentally measure and numerically determine the 10% volume of Non-wood material from the total volume of the handle for making joint assembly & their parts for a detachable cricket bat handle. So, the experiment was conducted by using water displacement method and by using some mathematical formulas to find out the total volume of handle from which 10% of non-wood material is determined. And the preceding study revealed that (21.49 cm3) volume of non-wood material would be used, from which the joint assembly and their parts prepared finally.
