Hi Yash,

Watch which way the ball goes when it hits your bat.  If it goes to the right, then for the next one, angle the bat to the left.  This will counter the spin on the ball.

We have a lot of tips on receiving serve in our Receiving Secrets series of lessons.  You can access these with a Premium membership.  Even if you take out a one month membership to try it out, you will be able to see all of the lessons.
