Hi, My questions is : 

In a service , If ball hit the edge and opponent would not be able to contact the ball or miss the stroke, so in this situation what should we do? 
shall we serve again? 


Kindly help me regarding this rule.

Hi Uzair,

It is considered a good serve and the server gets the point.

The ball can hit anywhere on the top of the table to be in and the edge is considered part of the top.

Thank you Alois.

You guided well, Plz make video regarding this rule and guide us further as well.

One more thing I've to ask,

I'm a right hand player , If I play a stroke and I put my other(left) hand on the table, so is it legal? My opponent would get the point?

You can't put your free hand on the table.
