Video - 'I Thought We Did Brilliantly' - Anderson
Watch as James Anderson says that in his view, England's bowlers did 'brilliantly' to take four Indian wickets on a lifeless Trent Bridge pitch on day one of the first Test.
He took two of them, removing Shikhar Dhawan early and then dismissing Cheteshwar Pujara after a lunch as England enjoyed a good spell.
However, Murali Vijay's unbeaten century and 50 not out from MS Dhoni has put India in the driver's seat.
Nevertheless, after England were heavily criticised in the wake of a 1-0 series defeat to Sri Lanka, Anderson says they deserve credit for their performance today.
"I thought we did brilliantly today," he said.
"Our attitude was fantastic, we could've moaned about the pitch quite easily and sulked about, but all the bowlers stuck at the task brilliantly and you know, we're pretty happy with our day's work."
The only disappointment for Anderson and his colleagues was a few edges not quite carrying to fielders.
"As bowlers, we don't expect seam movement, we expect flat pitches at Test level, but we just want our nicks to carry and for there to be a more even contest between bat and ball."
He takes a realistic view that in all likelihood, India will go on to score at least 400, but he is not giving up hope that England might still be able to produce something early on day two.
"Tomorrow morning will be really important, if we can restrict them as much as possible, get a couple of early wickets, then we might be able to rattle through their tail if we're lucky.
"But realistically, we've got a lot of hard work to do tomorrow so the region of 400 will be somewhere we will try and keep them down to. Whether we can do that or not, we'll wait and see."
