Steve first saw Yorkshire lose in 1978 and has been hooked ever since. He has also mostly seen England lose too, but he was there at Headingley in 1981 when Botham hit 149* and at Edgbaston in 2005 when Freddie dismissed Langer and Ponting in the same over.

As a player he is a dour and not particularly talented opening batsman, playing for Skipton CI Under 17s and Skipton CI 2nds in the Craven League, before realising that he was much better at watching cricket than playing. He is a Yorkshire CCC Life Member. When not obsessing about cricket, Busfield is a husband, father, Wire blogger and the Guardian's media and technology podfather.
