"We have to continue the competition well. Our main objective in the competition is to win the award of gold, "Jahanara told the media.
Seven teams are going to compete in the SA Games women's cricket. Hosts Nepal, India, Sri Lanka and Bhutan will play in Group A while group B will play in Bangladesh, Pakistan and Maldives.
Each group's two top teams will be promoted to the event's semifinals. On December 9, the final will take place.
