Don’t cross line in aggression, Lehmann

Don’t cross line in aggression, Lehmann
Australia coach Darren Lehmann on Monday warned his wards against “crossing the line” in on-field aggression but conceded that the side would always “teeter pretty close” to the edge. The verbal spat between David Warner and Rohit Sharma during the tri-series match on Sunday once again brought to fore the aggressive side of the home team and Lehmann said he wouldn’t want things to go out of hand.

“It’s not a great look. ICC have done something about it. At the end of the day we have to work better at those situations and get better as a group ... Davey said he’s been fined 50 per cent, so we’ll deal with that and move on. It’s not an ideal scenario, but we’ve got to make sure we’re playing the cricket we want to play without crossing the line. David’s an aggressive character and we support that. It’s just making sure he does the right things on the ground, and he knows that more than most. We’ll work with him with that,” Lehmann told Sky Sports Radio.
