LIVERPOOL – Despite failing a podium finish for the SA netball team, there was some consolation after their wing defence Karla Pretorius was named Player of the 2019 Vitality Netball World Cup.
Pretorius was honoured during the medal ceremony in front of a pact M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool on Sunday after the Australia -New Zealand final.
“I feel very honoured to have been named the best player of the World Cup," said Pretorius.
"You are only as good as those around you and the team did so well at this World Cup, and even though we won’t return home to South Africa with a medal.
"I know that we all put our hearts and souls into every game in Liverpool and can hold our heads high.
