Saenda’s ladies finished third ahead of world netball giants, England and Jamaica.In total there were six teams at the tournament.

Speaking upon the team’s arrival from Australia at Kamuzu International Airport (KIA) in Lilongwe, NAM’s general secretary, Carol Bapu, said their association is delighted with what Saenda has done to the nation.

“We are happy with how Mr Saenda has started his job, remember our target was to finish on the fourth place but see what has happened,” She said.

The Queens thumped England in the play off match meant to determine third and fourth positions respectively.

This is the first time for Malawi to finish on third position as the statistics shows that they have been only finishing on the fifth and sixth position in the past years.

However, although the team has finished on the better position but this will not change anything in as far as netball world rankings are concern.

Presently, Malawi is on the sixth position in the world and second in the continent of Africa as South Africa national netball team is still leading the African standings.
