That was a lack of maturity on my part. The group we had there was fantastic, but we were kidding ourselves if we thought we were doing the right thing.<br /> <br /> The flashy batsman, who has played for <a href="/tags/Delhi-Daredevils/post" target="_blank">Delhi Daredevils</a> in the last <a href="/tags/IPL/post" target="_blank">IPL</a>, believed he has learnt from past mistakes.<br /> <br /> "That showed me you have to do the right things along the way. I had some setbacks but I`d like to think I learned from my mistakes and I still have growing up to do.<br /> <br /> "I`m only 26. I’m still learning off the older guys in the team, but I’d like to think of myself as a leader in this environment."<br /> <br /> Warner has not been having a good outing in the ongoing four-match Border-Gavaskar Test series, which the Australians have already lost having suffered big defeats in Chennai, Hyderabad and Mohali.
