Between sets the man commonly known as "The Hairy Javelin" reflected on the moment which sent New Zealand sports fans into a frenzy.

Last week marked five years from the day that Elliot crushed a six into the stands of Eden Park to secure New Zealand's place in the 2015 Cricket World Cup final.

It is a moment that will go down in Kiwi sporting history.

Elliott also touched on the importance of exercise to the mental health of Kiwis, particularly at a time when New Zealanders are strictly house bound.

“The main thing is more around mental health I reckon and I think were seeing that now," he said.

“I see a lot of people walking past the house and its more just to get that mental freshness I think, and the worst thing you can do is sit around, eat poorly and not exercise because then mentally you’re going to struggle”
