I am right handed player, on those strokes to return short ball like the push and flick , which foot do i step forward?
If i am playing the backhand stroke (such as a backhand push) do i step in right or left foot? What about forehand push?
You step forward with the right foot for both the forehand and backhand short push. This allows you to get closer to the ball with your hand. If you go in with your left foot, the left side of your body gets in the way of you and the ball.
Take a look at our tutorial on Footwork for a Short Ball for some more help on this.
