Malawi national netball team the Queens will play two testing matches against Trinidad and Tobago ahead of the team’s participation in the Netball World Cup scheduled to start in August 7, 2015.
Netball Association of Malawi (NAM) President Carol Bapu confirmed of the development in an interview with Malawi-sports.com.
Bapu said Malawi Queens is expected to face the two teams on August 4 in Sydney, Australia, just four days before the throw-off of the tournament.
On her part, Queens Coach Peace Chawinga-Kalua hailed NAM for securing friendly matches for the team, saying this will help the players to work out on their weaknesses.
“We are looking forward to the game because it will give us a good test since we have not had any friendly game,” said Chawinga.
Meanwhile, Queens’ captain, Carol Mtukule- Ngwira said the return of New Zealand-based shooter Mwawi Kumwenda was a big motivation to the rest of the players.
