By Hishan Welmilla in Sydney Australia.


The battle for the supremacy in netball is reaching toward its best as we witnessed one of the best matches so far in the competition as Jamaica Sunshine Girls pulled a thrilling one goal win over Malawi here in Sydney today/


All eyes turn to Jamaica in advance of their meeting against Malawi on today; while New Zealand, South Africa, Australia and England also return to the court do decide their fate in the Netball World Cup 2015.


The match between Jamaica Sunshine Girls and the Malawi queens ended in a nail biting finish as Calypso Girls pulled out a thrilling one goal (63-62) win in the dying seconds. That win gave a clear edge in the Pool E adding two points to have 4 in total.


After the matches on Thursday New Zealand was on the top of the Pool E with 4 points. New Zealand will meet Uganda later in the evening at 6.20 pm local time.


 In Pool F the defending Champions Australia heads the table with 4 points followed by England and South Africa. England will encounter South African attack today at 4.20 pm local time. Australian Diamonds will meet  Uganda as the last match of the day scheduled at 6.20pm.

Sri Lanka and Barbados still find themselves fighting to avoid last place, Barbados will take heart from Thursday's result before finding out who is set to join them in the 13th-16th place play-off bracket.

Should Dilshan have continued until Cricket World Cup 2019?

Yes No

“That was pathetic. No excuse at all. The whole team is responsible. Whoever the captain is, we have to back him and try and support him. The captain has to do so many other stuff. All the 11 guys must back him and support him.” “We have addressed the issue of finishing off the overs on time in the past as well, but it cropped up again. It’s so unfortunate to see Upul going out as he is a crucial player in our set up. He batted well against South Africa and it’s so unfortunate. This can’t happen again,” - Angelo Mathews


Cricket is a game of fine margins and Mathews is set to be a modern great. Hang in their Angie, this team can achieve something on this tour. Thirimane and the youngsters form was a real positive. Prasad was missed. Chameera should be persisted with. If Bairstow was our early outcome could have been very different.
