Dane Piedt made his breakthrough season in 2013-14 when he took 45 wickets in eight Sunfoil Series matches for the Cobras including a hat trick. His form was recognised by selection for the Castle Lager Proteas Test squad for the tours to Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe in 2014.
He made his Test debut on this latter tour, taking eight wickets in the one-off Test, the most successful spin bowling debut since unity. He also took a wicket with his first ball in Test cricket, becoming the second South African to accomplish this feat.
In all first-class cricket he has the exceptional strike rate for a spinner of 46 and an economy rate of 3.12.
