Dane Leeroy Piedt (born 6 March 1990) is a South African cricketer. He plays for the Cape Cobras. He made his Test cricket debut for South Africa against Zimbabwe in August 2014.

Domestic career

Piedt, like many of his other Cape Cobras' team-mates, made his first-class debut for the Western Province cricket team. Primarily an off-spin bowler, Piedt is also a useful lower-order batsman. Piedt signed with the Cape Cobras in 2011. In August 2017, he was named in Jo'burg Giants' squad for the first season of the T20 Global League. However, in October 2017, Cricket South Africa postponed the tournament until November 2018.

Emerging Players tournament

Piedt represented South Africa during an Emerging Players tournament between India, Australia and New Zealand. He had a largely ineffective tournament, playing in one first-class match taking a wicket albeit expensively, and did not take a wicket in one limited overs outing.
