Top bowler? (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

spinner

Here is my best explanation:

This clue is a double definition.

'top' is the first definition.

(as in a playing top)

'bowler?' is the second definition.

(a spinner is a kind of bowler in cricket)

(Other definitions for spinner that I've seen before include "Slow bowler - used to catch a mackerel?", "Cricketer", "government spokesman?", "Bowler - fisherman's fly", "Spider", "Bowler; spider", "revolutionary ball", "Type of bowler", "It turns" and "No quickie".)
