The other semi-final match pits Highlanders against Harare City in Zvishavane, while the How Mine/CAPS United clash will be played in Harare. Matches will be played on the weekend of November 9 and 10.
However, all eyes will be on How Mine who have earned the tag “giant killers”, after beating both Highlanders and Dynamos home and away.
CAPS United have proven to be a tricky customer for “Chikurupati”, as they were the first team to beat them at home in a league match in April.
How Mine coach Philani Ncube said they are ready for CAPS United.
“It is not going to be an easy game for us, but we are ready to compete. We will be meeting them soon in a league game. Our wish is that both Bulawayo teams sail through so that the final is played in Bulawayo,” he said.
However, CAPS United assistant coach Brenna Msiska said they want to win the Cup so as to revive their “Cup Kings” tag.
“We must be prepared for any team if we want to be champions. Our target is to get the Mbada Diamonds Cup, and the players are already motivated,” he said.
Highlanders coach Kelvin Kaindu described the draw as fair.
“All the teams deserve to be in the semis considering the amount of work they have put to be at this stage. We will be ready for Harare City,” he said.
