First person caught in a far-off land (6)
I believe the answer is:
Here is my best explanation:
'land' is the definition.
(Africa is an example)
'first person caught in a far-off' is the wordplay.
'first person' becomes 'i'.
'caught' becomes 'c' (cricket abbreviation).
'in' indicates putting letters inside.
'off' indicates an anagram.
'afar' with letters rearranged gives 'afra'.
'ic' placed inside 'afra' is 'AFRICA'.
