How should I tackle heavy side spinner and back spinner(all in one). Usually I just imitate his brushing and at times angle, it tends to go well but at times it is hard to get back to game especially in case of side spin and cork spin, as he gets a chance for top spinning it back.Can you suggest a better way to return or maybe more efficient way too.

Hi Arjun,

I think the best thing is to just use the angle of your bat to return the ball that has spin on it.

If you try to spin the ball the other way or come across the line of the ball then you will find you will start to make errors.  If you can, take a look at our Receiving Secrets Course.  This has a lot of information on how to deal with spin.  You can sign up for a Monthly Premium  membership for just $30 and be able to view all of our Premium membership content.

whats cork spin?

It is sidespin where the ball is rotating very much on an axis that runs from back to front of the ball.

You can do it with most serves but it really is just sidespin without much forward motion.
