Gareth Kyle Berg (born 18 January 1981) is a cricketer who plays for Hampshire County Cricket Club.

Born in South Africa, he attended South African College School. Despite this he is not considered a Kolpak player, and is qualified by residency for England as well as holding an Italian passport.[1]

Berg's career began at Western Province where he appeared in a handful of one day matches, before moving to England where he signed with Northamptonshire, playing second XI cricket for the county. He signed with Middlesex in 2007, again playing in the second XI before breaking into the first team in 2008, making his List A debut against Surrey at the Oval and his First Class debut a few days later at Lord's against Glamorgan. He received his county cap in 2010.[2]

He played for Italy in the 2012 ICC World Twenty20 qualifiers.[3]
