By Mphatso Malidadi:

Malawi national netball team assistant Coach, Whyte Mulilima, has said mastering Fast5 Netball World Series rules would be key to the Queens’ success at this year’s event set for Hisense Arena in Melbourne, Australia.

“We should master where to score from. We need to know how many points we get from each scoring zone. We also need to utilise our power-play because it doubles the points,” said Mulilima after Wednesday’s training session at Blantyre Youth Centre.

He said competition in the squad is high and players would be selected on merit.

“We will not go by names. So, if youngsters impress, they will be in the team and, if the same senior players impress, we will also consider them. We have put the players at the same level,” he said.

Queens face a difficult task to replicate their performance of 2016 exploits when they finished on third place at the event.
