THE Fiji women's side is targeting at least a win against the top guns at the Pepsi International Cricket Council East Asia-Pacific Women's Championship in Port Vila, Vanuatu.
The tournament, which will be held from May 14-19, will see six countries competing.
Japan, Papua New Guinea and Samoa are the leading contenders alongside Vanuatu and Cook Islands.
Fiji coach Josefa Rika is hoping the side will make a real impact in the championship.
Rika in a statement to Times Sports said they aimed to win three out of the five games and give the other two teams' good competition.
"On paper Japan and PNG are in a different League to the other teams but we've played Samoa on a couple of occasions and have come close so we definitely see Samoa as a threat to us achieving our goal in the tournament," he said.
With the national women's side set to compete in their biggest international competition, Rika believes a successful participation will be fantastic promotion for the women's game in Fiji.
"Sera Kaukiono has just completed her first full club season in Australia and hopefully she can bring some of her good form to Vanuatu," he said.
"Marica Vua has been bowling well in the Suva women's competition and after a pleasing performance in her last International tour, I hope she can do the same in 2012.
"The opportunity to compete at an international event overseas will definitely build the image of women's cricket in Fiji."
