Malawi will be without star player Mwawi Kumwenda who is injured.

But UK-based Joyce Mvula will join the squad in Liverpool.

“Getting the best players to come with to Liverpool is very important and critical part of our preparations,” he said after announcing the  squad of 12 on Thursday.
“I have worked with all players we had in camp during a week’s camp in Blantyre  and I have assessed them and l feel we have selected the best.
“I have also been working very closely with coach  Whyte Mulilima to make sure that we choose what we believe are the best players for this World Cup.
“I have spent some time also assessing one  of the players who  is  plying her trade in England Lauren Ngwira and this also helped us identify what value will she  bring into the team.”
The final 12 selected for the Vitality Netball World Cup is as follows:
Laureen Ngwira
Carol Mtukule
Towera Vinkhumbo
Joana Kachilika
Grace Mwafulirwa
Takondwa Lwanzi
