Australia coach Darren Lehmann, has praised the ICC's recent crackdown on suspect bowling actions, saying it is good for the game.

Since July 2014, the ICC's match officials have reported six bowlers for suspect actions, including Pakistan off-spinner Saeed Ajmal.

Ajmal, who has been Pakistan's lead spinner across formats was banned last week after being reported during the Galle Test against Sri Lanka.

Lehmann was recently nominated to the ICC Cricket Committee that had pushed for better methods to detect flex and suggested more support for match officials to identify illegal actions with confidence.
