Star goal shooter,  Malawi’s first international player Mwai Kumwenda has another roll scoring at most of the times.

Monitored by Nyasa Times live on Sky Sports 3, the Queens were comfortable in this match with 90 percent shooting accuracy.

Sindi Simutowe, who Sky Sport commentators referred to her nickname ‘Snipper’ also had a field day.

They were also fantastic display by Captain Caroline Mtukule-Ngwira,  Lauren Ngwira and Jane Chimaliro.

Malawi Queens were on fire from the get-go, with the attacking duo of Mwayi Kumwenda and Sindi Simtowe netting all 21 shots in the first quarter to give the team a 21-10 lead and were firlmy in control 42-15 at half time.

In the third quarter, Malawi also led 59 -23   before sealing victory with 75-31 at the final whistle.

Singapore’s veteran defender Premila Hirubalan described the score line at the final whistle as  “actually a pretty respectable one.”

The win guarantees the Queens will top Pool C and advance to a qualifying round group completed by New Zealand, Jamaica – who will finish second behind England in pool B plus either Uganda or Wales. England will join Australia in the other qualifying group from which the semi-finalists will be decided.

The Netball World Cup final will be played on Sunday.
