“Guys who are consistent are going to play for the team and Dave’s [Warne] just had some poor form and not high scores,” Lehmann said, according to an AAP report published on the Sydney Morning Herald.
“In terms of his work ethic and the way he wants to play for the team, it’s exceptional. We just want more runs on the board. At the end of the day, he hasn’t made enough runs in this format of the game.
“He knows that but we expect more runs from a player of his skill level and how many chances do you get I suppose?
“Obviously he’s had a few and now it’s a case of him going back to (domestic one-day cricket) and getting a few runs in that and getting back into the one-day team.”
Warner was dropped despite top scoring for Australia with 53 in a 27-run Twenty20 loss to England at Chester-le-Street on Saturday.
