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.
'i'+'c'='ic'
'a'+'far'='afar'
'afar' with letters rearranged gives 'afra'.
'ic' placed inside 'afra' is 'AFRICA'.
