Glenn Maxwell, who has been in sensational form for Australia off late, has admitted that ICCs crackdown on illegal bowling actions have turned out to be good for Australia as the Kangaroos beat Pakistan in the 2nd ODI to take an unassailable lead 2-0 lead in the three-match series with the final match to be played at Abu Dhabi on Sunday. A win here could see Australia back to the top of the ODI table in the ICC rankings. However, the result would still depend on the outcome of the ongoing India-West Indies series as well.

The opening ODI in Sharjah was also won by Australia by 93 runs and Pakistan now find them on the verge of a whitewash.

“What we’re seeing now is they’re having a crackdown on suspect actions which is probably playing into our hands a lot more,” said Man of the Match, Glenn Maxwell.

“We play a lot of conventional spinners in Australia. We’re able to dominate them. Now we’re seeing the unconventional spinners basically being eradicated from the game it’s going to play into our hands a little bit more as well,” he added.
