England will renew their rivalry with Malawi this November in a three-match Vitality Netball International Series.

It will be the Roses' last international series of 2017 as preparations for the 2018 Commonwealth Games and England's hunt for gold intensify.

With Malawi currently ranked sixth in the official INF world rankings, Peace Kaluwa's side will be confident of causing an upset at the Commonwealth Games and will be out to impress and show their recent rapid development when they come to England at the end of the year.

England certainly won't underestimate their opponents but will be seeking a repeat result of the last time Malawi visited. Back in 2014 the Roses saw out a comfortable 2-0 series victory, winning the first clash 68-36 and the second game 65-44.

The Copper Box Arena will play host to the first two games of the 2017 series with England and Malawi going head-to-head for the first time on Friday 24th November at 7.45pm before meeting again just two days later on Sunday 26th November at 2pm.

Both sides then move to the Genting Arena in Birmingham for the third and final game, which will take place on Wednesday 29th November at 7:45pm.

The past few weeks, Emma Mzagada who was playing partner of Mary Waya, reported in Nyasa Times complaining how the Queens deserted her after falling sick.

After being dumped by   Airtel Malawi, Malawi national netball team, the Queens have secured K600m, a five-year sponsorship deal from the Rach Family Trust.

Stakeholders are demanding substantial financial injection into netball, days after the Malawi Queens won their first ever bronze medal at the Fast5 World Series in Australia.

New Queens’ coach Griffin Saenda hopes to restore the national netball team’s glory on the global scene.
