Hi Harikrishnan,

The first thing to do is, watch out for our new DVD Receiving Secrets Revealed!

You need to focus on the angle of your bat and where the ball is going when it hits your bat.  Then just turn your bat so that the angle takes it towards the table.  You also need to understand the effect of spin.  This is learned by understanding some basic principles and then being able to adjust your bat you get the ball back.

If the ball is shooting off to the right hand side, then angle your bat towards the left to counteract the spin and vice versa.
