Zimbabwe's national soccer and cricket teams both had defeats to digest following a weekend of unrewarding international play. Zimbabwe's Warriors were scorched by the Flames of Malawi 1-0 in Blantyre soccer play Saturday, and must beat Morocco in the next Africa Cup Qualifier to have any hope of getting to Ghana in 2008.
Zimbabwe's cricket team suffered defeat at the hands of West Indies by nine wickets Sunday in Ahmedabad, India, in the International Cricket Council's Champions Trophy.
Harare-based sports commentator Michael Kariati discussed the defeats with sports reporter Marvellous Mhlanga-Nyahuye of Studio 7 for Zimbabwe.
