The Dulux XI, which Elliott played for, was selected from Dulux Trade Painters around New Zealand.

The ACC side was made up of ACC commentators (including Leigh Hart and Jason Hoyte), Radio Hauraki announcers (including Wells and breakfast co-host Matt Heath), winners of an on-air Hauraki radio competition and ex-Black Cap Marshall.

After 20 overs, each team had scored 158. A "bowl off" saw each team bowled at a set of stumps with Dulux NZ triumphing, hitting the stumps twice to ACC's one.

The day also included Dulux NZ invited clients and was watched by a crowd of about 100, chosen from a national in-store promotion.

The winners from a Dulux trade promotion were also treated to an amazing Hawke's Bay experience on Saturday, with a long lunch and quality wine selections at Craggy Range, golf at Cape Kidnappers Golf Course and a tour of some of Hawke's Bay's finest craft beer and cider producers.
