in the shakehand holding position which is better 1 finger on the back or 2 or 3 fingers on the back my friends tell me that 1 finger is for the ultimate smash.  Two fingers is for control and three finger if for the ultimate spin.  Well you are the coach is it true?

Hi Vaman,

It is best to have just the one finger on the back of the bat.  This allows you to use your wrist most effectively and also gives you enough support to control your strokes.

If you put two or three fingers on the back you will limit the use of your wrist and you will also take up more space on the backhand side of the bat unnecessarily.
