We have previously published the best Bowlers of the Decades based on our database of results and ranking points system.

Records and opportunities for bowlers improved during the 1970s as the sport developed in the UK and abroad.

We now publish year by year who, according to our records, was the best bowler each year throughout the 1970s.
