James Anderson was influential as England stuck doggedly to their task to gain the upper hand in the first Test against West Indies at Kensington Oval on Wednesday.
The tourists often found the going tough in Barbados but ultimately managed to limit the Windies to 264-8, with Anderson (4-33) the star.
Test debutant John Campbell (44) and Shai Hope (57) were among several home batsmen to make promising starts without going on to build big scores.
Anderson impressed the most for England – who left Stuart Broad out of their XI – with the 36-year-old having now taken 200 Test wickets outside of England and Wales.
The hosts will resume with Shimron Hetmyer (56 not out), dropped by Jos Buttler when on three, and Alzarri Joseph (0 not out) in the middle.
West Indies won the toss and made a solid start, with Kraigg Brathwaite's initial patience – his batting bordering on the ponderous at times – proving a source of frustration for England.
It was in the 19th over that Moeen Ali made the breakthrough, accounting for Campbell lbw after an eye-catching outing from the opener.
There was more toil and sweat for the tourists after lunch as Brathwaite and Hope's partnership passed the 50 mark.
But persistence paid off when Ben Stokes (3-47) sent the stubborn Brathwaite back to the pavilion, forcing an edge that was claimed by captain Joe Root at first slip.
Darren Bravo, making his first appearance in the longest format since 2016, was the next man in but he added just two runs before being trapped lbw by Stokes.
Rain led to an early tea with the hosts on 132-3 and upon resumption Hope soon reached his half-century, the milestone reached in 126 deliveries.

However, his knock ended when Anderson managed to coax a loose shot that Hope inside edged through to wicketkeeper Ben Foakes.
Hetmyer had a let-off when Buttler dropped a diving catch off Anderson's bowling and he made the most of that reprieve, his innings offering the Windies some consolation.
England's leading wicket-taker did not have to dwell for too long on that miss, though, with Root taking another catch at first slip to dismiss Roston Chase for 54.
There was still time for Anderson to account for Shane Dowrich, who failed to score, and captain Jason Holder (5), while Hetmyer reached his 50 before the scoreless Kemar Roach fell to Stokes to bring play to a close.
