England beat Malawi 65-44 at the University Arena in Worcester to win their two-match series 2-0.

The series against the fifth-best nation in the world was cut short by one match after visa problems meant Malawi missed Sunday's opener.

England won Wednesday's match 68-36 at London's Copper Box Arena.

And they were equally as comfortable winners in front of a capacity crowd on Saturday, outscoring the Malawi Queens in each of the four quarters.
