Second Ashes Test, Adelaide
Australia 245 v England 1-0
Decenber 3rd-7th, 00:00 GMT start
England will resume on 1-0 on Saturday after dismissing Australia for 245 on day one of the second Ashes Test in Adelaide
James Anderson had the best figures on Friday with 4-51, but all of England's bowlers deserved praise for the way they bowled on the opening day of play.
"We bowled fantastically as a group," Anderson told BBC Radio 5 live following the first day of play.
"Me and Stuart Broad started really well. We built on the early run-out throughout the day. I thought we all bowled well."
He added: "I'm bowling well and maybe I didn't get what I deserved in Brisbane but that's gone now.
"I can only concentrate on today and doing my very best."
Australia won the toss on Friday morning and chose to bat at a ground which historically has favoured batsmen.
But despite perfect conditions and a flat wicket, hopes of putting on a high first innings score faded fast as Simon Katich was run out in the first over without facing a ball, while captain Ricky Ponting departed next ball for a golden duck in his 150th Test match.
England will be looking to do on day two what Australia couldn't do on Friday and Anderson has backed his team-mates to pick up where they left off with the bat following last week's 517-1 declared in the second innings of the drawn first Test in Brisbane.
"The pitch is a bit slower than we thought it would be," he said.
"But we knew it would be a good pitch, there were some nice cover drives and drives down the ground [from Australia's batsmen]."
It's advantage England heading into day two but as we learnt from the first Test, momentum can change quickly!
