Hello sir,

Sir I want to ask that how I improve to play from both the hands to confuse my opponents.

Hi Devansh,

As with all things this takes practice. So if you have twice as much time as everyone else you can learn to play right and left handed. However my personal opinion is that you are much better off focusing on playing with one hand.

Sir this is not a correct answer. Please tell how I improve.

Or please make a short video to explain clearly.

The only situation where a hand switch is worth it is when you are off the table and you have to move from a wide forehand to a wide backhand.. In other words, you only need to train a single shot if you insist on involving your other hand

When you find yourself running from one side of the table to the other, you might find it useful to play a forehand topspin with your left hand

Can I serve from left hand and then playing from right hand.

Sure, but it has very few advantages

This is not you should do in a match. Really easy to fail that. And training on that is worthless in my opinion.

The alternative is a running backhand chop with fast equipment, or a sky lob
