The ranking list relates to senior teams of member countries that are playing regular international test matches.

Netball Association of Malawi (Nam) General Secretary, Carol Bapu, said there was need for a policy and effort to keep the Queens active if they are to break into position top-four.

“If we can be playing test matches I am sure that we can break into the top-three. During the Fast5 Netball World Series, the team showcased its potential that it can be in the top-five. All we need is support from all stakeholders to make sure that the team is active throughout to gain more points,” she said.

Malawi won bronze at the Fast5 Netball World Series but the competition is not factored in the rankings.
