Hi Ishan,

Try to watch the contact of the server.  Then make sure you are angling your bat to counteract the sidespin on the ball.  If the ball is being dragged to the right, then face your bat to the left and vice versa.

Learning to return spin is about firstly understanding the basic principles and then getting as much practice as possible against different serves.

We have a section on Receiving Secrets that will really help you.  It goes through the various areas that you need to get better at returning serve.
