Wellington Firebirds will start the 2017-18 edition of the McDonald’s Super Smash T20 as the defending champions after having won the title for the second time last season. The Wellington Firebirds squad defeated the Central Stags in the final by 14 runs to clinch the title after having last won it just two seasons before that.
This was after the Central Stags had finished atop of the points table with 30 points from 10 games and romped into the final and Wellington had had to take on Canterbury Kings in an Elimination Final. The Canterbury Kings squad had a decent chance to edge the Stags out in that game after they collapsed in the chase but lost anyway with four balls to spare.
The Auckland Aces have won most number of T20 titles in New Zealand cricket with four to their name to go with three runner-up trophies as well. This includes a victory two seasons back and a finals appearance in 2014-15 where they went down to the Wellington Firebirds.
Otago Volts and Central Stags are the other sides apart from Wellington to have won the title twice apiece, while Canterbury and Knights have triumphed once apiece.
