Dejected Malawi national netball team, the Queens, have released the line-up for this evening’s Test Series against hosts South Africa.
The Queens are mourning the death of their former mentor Griffin Saenda senior, who died earlier today at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital in Blantyre where he was admitted last Thursday.
Queens Coach Peace Chawinga Kaluwa said the mood in camp was subdued as the squad was failing to come to terms with Saenda’s death.
The coach has nonetheless picked an experienced squad for the match.
The Queens and Spar Proteas will battle in three test series.
The next games will take place tomorrow and on Sunday.
Meanwhile, spokesperson for Saenda’s family, Dietrich Friedrich, has said detailed burial programme would be released later.
“Tentatively, burial is on Saturday at HHI Cemetery,” he said.
