Malawi Queens to play three-Test series against South Africa

South Africa’s SPAR Proteas have announced they will be playing a three-Test series against the Malawi Queens at the end of November in Rustenburg.

The two sides last played each other at the 2019 Africa Netball Cup in October with hosts South Africa winning that match on the way to being crowned continental champions.

SPAR Proteas head coach Dorette Badenhorst has worked with her selectors to name a provisional squad of 30 players. This group will partake in a three-day training camp from November 22 in Sun City, before a final group of 15 players is confirmed to take on the Malawi Queens.

“2020 has been a very challenging year for Netball South Africa as we have had to reshuffle and revise our events calendar for the year,” Cecilia Molokwane, Netball South Africa president said.

According to the International Netball Federation South Africa and Malawi are ranked fifth and sixth in the world respectively and are currently the top two on the continent.
