Blackcaps vs India: Red-hot Ross Taylor no drawcard for son Jonty

While New Zealand cricket fans delight in Ross Taylor's incredible streak of ODI run-scoring, son Jonty has had enough.

The Black Caps batsman is in the form of his career, passing 50 in eight of his last nine one-day innings and averaging an incredible 125 runs in the past 12 months.

Every time the 34 year-old comes to the crease, it's appointment viewing - but not for his eldest child.

Taylor has made a habit of poking his tongue out whenever he scores a century - he now has 37 of them in international cricket - and when he was on 99 not out in the third one-dayer against Sri Lanka, wife Victoria was watching at home on television.

"The other day, my wife said to my son, 'do you want to watch daddy get a hundred?' and my son said, 'nah'," Taylor told The Rock's Morning Rumble.

"He was on the slip ‘n slide and he was like, 'nah, not interested'."

There's only one player in the world with a better one-day average than Taylor since the 2015 World Cup and that's Indian captain Virat Kohli, who just been named the ICC test, ODI and overall Cricketer of the Year.

The superstar tourists shouldn't be a team that worries Taylor either.

The classy right-hander averaged more than 50 in the last series against them in India and 88 during the four-nil series sweep in New Zealand back in 2014.

"Any time you play India, you know you're in for a good battle and the New Zealand public are in for a good feast of cricket."
