Hi Siddhartha,

What spin is the server putting on the ball? You need to identify this before you have a real chance of returning the serve consistently. It sounds like it might have sidespin and topspin on it. This would cause the ball to jump up and to the side off your bat. To counter this you would need to use your bat like a rudder to counter the sidespin and have it slightly closed to counter the topspin.
