Wellsy became a regular member of the Hurricanes line-up this season after playing just the two games in the previous season. Coming to the crease in the middle order, we saw glimpses of what he is capable of in BBL|03 particularly in the opening match. He made a crucial 36no in an innings which combined some explosive hitting and delicate poise against the Brisbane Heat as the Hurricanes chased down a record 211 at the Gabba.  He came to the crease with the Hurricanes needing 89 from 53 and his knock alongside Ben Dunk and Ben Hilfenhaus was a contributing factor to the win.  Wells also posted 24 against the Perth Scorchers in the Big Final.

Wells had a dominant season in the Cricket Tasmania Premier League, winning the league's Best Player award, the Emerson Rodwell Medal whilst also winning the Player of the Year for his club Clarence, alongside the One-Day and T20 Player of the Year awards.  Wells will be looking to impress in the Champions League and in lead up to BBL|04 and press for regular selection again in what will once again be a tough line-up to crack into.
