South Africa are in the semi-finals, while Uganda, Zimbabwe and Malawi are still in the hunt for fifth, meaning that this is the the first ever tournament at which four African nations will have finished in the top eight.
Proscovia, whose Uganda play Malawi tomorrow, said:
“It’s great news for the development of netball in Africa generally. For South Africa to push up into the top four is amazing – that is all of Africa performing and we are so proud of it.”
Of the battle for fifth – between the three remaining African nations and Jamaica – she said:
“It’s amazing to have all of us compete again, and it’s a great procedure that allows us to have a hope of getting to fifth. But all I can say is let the best team win – we are going to come in well prepared.”
