Kumwenda inspires Malawi to beat South Africa

Malawi national netball team—the Queens – has trimmed to size the South African side thrashing  them 61-37 for the once-off test as a curtain-raiser to the test between world champions Australia and world No 1 New Zealand in Perth, Australia.

The win will go some way to ensure Malawi to reclaim their ranking as the No 1 team in Africa. Currenlty Malawi Queens are sixth-ranked in the world while South Africa are fifth.

Mwai Kumwenda: Impressive for Malawi

Malawi managed to avenge the World Championship defeat  “on the back of an impressive performance from goal shooter Mwai Kumwenda”, according to a report in The Sydney Morning Herald.

Malawi was quick to take a 6-2 lead by the 11th minute mark, ending the first quarter 15-8 ahead.

The Queens went on to take a 32-16 half-time lead.

And after the win, Malawi Queens did their celebration with their popural comical boogie-woogie  dance routine.

In the match between the world netball giants, brave second half comeback wasn’t enough for Australia to avoid a 49-48 defeat to New Zealand in the first game of their three-Test netball series.

New Zealand recovered from two goals down in the final quarter to defeat Australia 49-48.
