    Why can't the Bvi get a dirt pitch as other countries? Playing on carpet year after year then when the national team leave to go play against another country team, it's all dirt good pitches is it that hard for the Bvi to get a good proper dirt pitch or is it just bad management in the Bvi cricket association!!!!!
