it depends on your BC.
If they are periodic, you can use periodic BC
If they are periodic, you can use symmetric BC (or 2d-axi model)

Thanks for the help.

I am modelling spherical flame propagation inside a sphere. Please let me know now.

I don't think flame propagation is periodic / symmetric.
But I am not expert
If I am right, then you will have to compute the full sphere.
