Dane Piedt quits South Africa career to play for US
 
Johannesburg: South African off-spinner Dane Piedt has ended his association with the South Africa and will move to the US in the next few months to be part of the new Minor League T20 tournament. The 30-year-old bowler intends to meet the qualifying criteria to play for the US national team and hopes to feature at the International Cricket Council''s (ICC) flagship event. "The US were given ODI status last year so it''s not completely out of the question," ESPNcricinfo quoted Piedt as saying. "I just signed the deal this morning but no-one really knows when I will be able to travel. It was an opportunity I just couldn''t pass up, financially and for lifestyle reasons, but it was still a tough decision to make," he added.

Piedt doesn''t see himself being picked in the Proteas team in the near future after losing ground to other spinners and fancies his chances in US, where there is a dearth of cricketers with experience of playing in the top-flight. The spinner has never travelled to the US and doesn''t even know where he will be based in the long term. Piedt said he has been taking tips from former South Africa seamer Rusty Theron, who helped him secure the deal. Theron has been living in the US for several years and made his ODI debut for the country last year. "He has given me some information, especially about the cricket scene there.

It''s a decent set-up and I know they have some good cricketers like Xavier Marshall and a few Australians and Indians who played in national Under-19 teams and then moved,'''' Piedt said. Piedt made his debut for South Africa on August 9, 2014. The right-handed bowler featured in nine Test matches and took 26 wickets.
