“I have the confidence in the three. They have played netball for some time. They are senior players and are experienced. They will be assisting each other with Grace taking the lead,” he said.


Mhango said it was not the first time that she had skippered the Queens.

“Our mission is to move a step up. We just have to be united if we are to break into top-four [of the world ranking],” she said.
