England's seamers ensured the team made a strong start to the second Investec Test against the West Indies at Trent Bridge.
Windies skipper Darren Sammy won the toss and opted to bat first in glorious conditions, but both James Anderson and Stuart Broad struck with the new ball as the tourists reached 42 for two after an hour's play.
Trent Bridge is known as a swing bowling haven, but there was no lavish movement through the air in the first hour - with a stunning catch and a loose shot accounting for the wickets of Adrian Barath and Kirk Edwards.
Anderson kicked things off with a maiden to Barath, with Kieran Powell scoring the first runs of the day with a four from Broad's second ball.
Broad beat him with the next delivery, but a thick outside edge fell short of first slip and squirmed away for four more.
Barath fell for a 13-ball duck in Broad's second over, edging high to third slip where Anderson showed superb reactions to snare a memorable one-handed catch.
Anderson would have added the wicket of Edwards in the next over had Tim Bresnan been able to hold on to the tough chance in the same position. Graeme Swann might have had a simpler catch at second slip had it been left for him, but instead the ball disappeared to the third man boundary.
Anderson did not have to wait long for his breakthrough, finding enough sideways movement to guide one into the gap between Edwards' bat and pad to bowl him for seven.
England were unchanged, with Bresnan keeping out Steven Finn, and the tourists recalling Shane Shillingford and Ravi Rampaul.
