Malawi national netball team boosted by the arrival of super star Mwawi Kumwenda into camp will face Trinidad and Tobago in a friendly game before the start of Netball World Cup scheduled for 7-16 August in Australia.
Queens coach Peace Chawinga Kalua confirmed the development with Nyasa Times, saying it would help the team to polish rough edges of the diamond.
Chawinga Kalua defended the choice of Trinidad and Tobago saying that the game wouldf equally help the players work on their weaknesses.
“Malawi is going to play against Trinidad and Tobago before the World Netball Cup because this is the only team which was available,” Chawinga-Kalua said.
“We are looking forward to the game because it will give us a good test since we have not had any friendly game.”
Kalua said she was impressed with the performance of Mwawi Kumwenda since joining the team after a standoff with Netball Association of Malawi over outstanding allowances.
