Zimbabwe put up an amazing performance Tuesday, winning 66-41 against Barbados, to send the Caribbean team to the cleaners in the Vitality Netball World Cup.
The Gems now have to win against Malawi on Thursday to qualify for top 8 spot.
Zimbabwe had won the hearts of many neutrals with their performances in the competition so far, and came into the game with the possibility of earning a top-six finish at their first ever World Cup still alive. Coach Loyd Makunde told reporters after the game that he expected his charges to win.
“I was so confident that we were going to win (against Barbados) … I can say were are raising our game and we are going to be one of the big guns a few years to come … We now know that everyone is beatable and anything can happen in the World Cup.”
Zimbabwe were beaten 36-79 by New Zealand on Monday after falling to Australia in the same tournament. The Gems beat Sri Lanka 79-49.
