Qualified: Second

Last won the title: 2005/06 (the first year of the competition)

Previous Elimination Final: 2021/22, beat Wellington Firebirds by six wickets

Pocket Notes: Dream11 Super Smash men's runner-up for three years in a row. Last summer's top qualifier, beaten by Northern Brave in the Hagley Oval Grand Final. Eager to shake off Bridesmaids tag.
