Hayden believes Warner must `buy into` Oz team culture to achieve potential
Brisbane: Former Australian Test opener Matthew Hayden has said that he believes David Warner needs to buy into the national team culture before he can achieve his rich potential.
According to the Courier Mail, three centuries, including an Australian record 197, in the domestic one-day competition have put Warner firmly on track to retain his place for the Ashes-opening Test at the Gabba on November 21.
The return to form pleased Hayden, who is in India commentating on Australia`s one-day series, the report said.
However, Hayden argues scoring runs is only half the equation for Warner to unlock all of his grand abilities and make the most of his Test career, the report added.
The 27-year-old was suspended in June by Cricket Australia after throwing a punch at England batsman Joe Root in a Birmingham bar, the report further said.
Hayden believes for Warner to succeed at Test level, he needs to buy into the strict Australian team culture, according to the report.
He said that the culture demands excellence on and off the field, adding that there have been a few instances that have not been desirable and he does not think Warner would shy away from that.
