Lehmann, who was yesterday unveiled as the successor to the sacked Mickey Arthur, will take up the reins immediately and lead his side into an Ashes series against England.
Lehmann won the urn twice as a player with Warne and spent four years alongside him in the Victoria dressing room. “We would love him (Warne) in the room. The past legends is what we are about,” said Lehmann.
“Having guys involved in our current structure and having some sort of input. You don’t have a guy take 700 Test wickets and not use him if he is around the place.
He is always welcome as is anyone who has represented Australia in our dressing room. I will be after the past players to use their knowledge and guidance along the way.
“If he (Warne) is around, and I know he is commentating with Sky all the time, then we will certainly use him. I have had some great messages. They (past players) are an important part of what we are trying to create.”
