Kyle David Hodnett (born 4 December 1986) is a South African born English cricketer. Hodnett is a left-handed batsman who bowls right-arm fast-medium. He was born in Durban, Natal Province.

Having been a part of the MCC Young Cricketers from 2005 to 2008,[1] Hodnett made his List A debut for the Marylebone Cricket Club in 2008 against Bangladesh A at The Racecourse, Durham.[2] In this match, Hodnett took the wicket of Naeem Islam in the Bangldesh A first-innings, conceding in the process 43 runs from 10 overs. With the bat, he scored 6 runs before being dismissed by Dolar Mahmud. Bangladesh A won the match by 80 runs.[3] Also during the 2008 season, he took a Second XI Championship hat-trick against Northamptonshire II at Brunton Memorial Ground, Radlett, becoming the first MCC Young Cricketer to take a hat-trick in the Second XI Championship.[4] Hodnett was included in Nottinghamshire's 2009 preseason plans but suffered a Patellar Tendinitis injury to his right knee, which ruled him out for the rest of the season.[5]

In 2010, he made four Minor Counties Championship appearances for Berkshire against Wales Minor Counties, Cheshire, Shropshire and Cornwall.[6]

He returned to his native South Africa where he made his First-Class debut for KwaZulu-Natal against Free State in the CSA Provincial Three-Day Competition 2011/12.[7] During the 2012/13 season, he made his Twenty20 debut for KwaZulu-Natal against Griqualand West at Kingsmead Cricket Ground.[8]
