In 2012, Horn took the Proteas on a team-building expedition in the Alps prior to their Test series in England. The Proteas, with Kirsten as head coach, went on to dominate England in their backyard to snatch the No 1 Test ranking.

The Proteas are now coached by Russell Domingo, but Kirsten still helps out from time to time as a batting consultant.

Horn on Thursday revealed to News24live that Kirsten has asked him to help the Proteas during their World Cup campaign early next year.

The 2015 Cricket World Cup, to be staged in Australia and New Zealand, will take place from February 14-March 29.
