Cricketer's skill with revolver -- it should make a good yarn (8-5)
I believe the answer is:
'it should make a good yarn' is the definition.
(a spinning wheel spins yarn)
'cricketer's skill with revolver' is the wordplay.
'cricketer's skill' becomes 'spinning' (bowling technique).
'with' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'revolver' becomes 'wheel' (I've seen this in another clue).
