All is set for game one of the afro-basketball playoffs between Zimbabwe and South Africa slated for Wembley Indoor Arena in Johannesburg.
The match is scheduled for 8pm Zimbabwean time.
Zimbabwe is missing star player Vitalis Chikoko who was ruled out of the playoffs owing to injury.
Zimbabwe will, however, be looking up to local stars such as Simba and Tawanda Chitsinde to provide spark for the visitors.
Zimbabwe is vying for a second consecutive afro-basket qualification after making a maiden appearance in Tunisia in 2015.
