It was Malawi’s new record of highest score in a major tournament.

After beating South Africa in the opening tie, inspired Peace Chawinga- Kalua led Malawi Queens were in no uncompromising mood against Sri Lanka, dominating the game and reducing their opponents to amateurs.

Monitored by Nyasa Times on Sky Sports 5 television, New Zealand-based Malawi shooter Mwai Kumwenda had another amazing day. Scoring at will, 20 baskets in first 15 minutes of the game.

Sky Sport commentators lavished praises to Kumwenda, describing her as “a super talent” and “super woman.”

There were also scores from Kumwenda’s shooting partner Sindi Simutowe who proved is another star following Kumwenda’s footsteps with shooting accuracy of the Malawi side at 90 percent.

The Queens led 23-3 in the first quarter and cruised to 52- 6 by second quarter.

The coming in of Joyce Mvula and Laureen Ngwira added impetus to the Malawi who went on terrorising their opponents and Mvula kept the scores coming with 18 baskets to her  credit and Kumwenda 32.

The vintage win will keep Malawi on course to progress as group winners.

It was an amazing goal. It has been 12 years since 100 baskets were registered in a World Cup.
