HistoryEdit

On 10 January 2012, Digital Auto Care made the winning bid of $1.07 million for the franchise.

First seasonEdit

The men in yellow had started off the tournament poorly by losing to Chittagong by over 200 runs. Then losing against Barisal who posted a high total. The yellows had a strong come back after successive defeats at the start of the tournament to come back winning seven games in a row. This led to their rise to the top of the league as number one to then progress on to the semi-final stages. Having fought back after a collapse of the top order the captain Mushy as able to build a strong partnership along with Zimbabwean Sean Ervine to an imposing total. However they lost due to an unstoppable century by Ahmed Shehzad
