Former West Indies fast bowler Darren Powell thinks that Wilford ‘Billy’ Haven did the right thing to pull out of the race to be president of Cricket West Indies, CWI.

Heaven was set to go up against incumbent vice president of the CWI, Dr Kishore Shallow, for the leadership of the regional body.

Heaven entered the race after securing the support of Jamaica, Barbados, Trinidad and Tobago and Guyana.

However, two of the countries later shifted their to Dr Shallow, a cricket administrator from St Vincent and the Grenadines.

Speaking on Mason and guest, Powell says he was more surprised when Heaven entered the race.
