Malawi national netball team date Barbados today in a dress-rehearsal for their 2018 Commonwealth Games opener against England in Australia on Friday.
Malawi then face a litmus test against fast-improving Uganda on Saturday.
The Ugandans are breathing on the Queens’ neck as they are ranked seventh in the world, one place behind Malawi.
On Sunday, the Queens meet New Zealand’s Silver Ferns.
Malawi will conclude their group stage games against Wales and Scotland on April 11 and 12 respectively.
The Queens will bank on the skills and experience of Mwawi Kumwenda (Melbourne Vixens, Australia), Manchester Thunder shooter, Joyce Mvula, and all-rounder Lauren Ngwira, who is expected to complete a move from Tigresses to Northumbria of England.
