Australian head coach Darren Lehmann has said that he keeps away from having long 'in-depth' conversations with opener David Warner as the controversial batsman would not 'understand'.

Lehmann also spoke candidly about his racial tirade against Sri Lanka in 2003, for which he later apologised and served a suspension, calling it the 'biggest mistake of his life'.

According to, Lehmann said that the key to getting the best out of the Australian team was understanding each individual player's personality and treating them accordingly, adding that he tends not to talk to Warner too long as the player would not understand and 'lose it'.

Stating that he 'keeps it short' for Warner's teammates like Glenn Maxwell too as they then play their best cricket, Lehmann however, said that he likes to talk in-depth with the seniors like Shane Watson, Mitchell Johnson and captain Michael Clarke as they are more experienced and also 'gets it easier'.

Lehmann further said that players are their own harshest critics, adding that although they sometimes may get a 'rocket' from him, it is for their own good in order to ensure that they are in a 'really good place' to play the best cricket they can.
