London: Mike Horn has, through The Telegraph, wished Team India the “very best” in the four Tests that remain.
Late on Tuesday, Horn sent an email to this Reporter, which included the following: “Do wish the Indian cricket team the very best... I’ll be closely following the next four Tests.”
On Wednesday afternoon, that email was shown to India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni. “It’s so nice of Mike,” he said, after seeing it on a BlackBerry.
Horn, it may be recalled, had worked with Team India before and during the 2011 World Cup campaign.
Where World Cups go, Horn worked with Germany both before and during the just-ended soccer World Cup.
Horn, therefore, now has a ‘double’.
