Hi Haseeb,

The first thing is to move across as far and as fast as you can to the backhand position.  Remember to allow for the ball swinging away from you to your left.

Then make a topspin stroke back if possible.  If you play a strong topspin it will counteract the sidespin and topspin on the ball.  You can try to play a hook backhand but that is a lot more complex.
