James Anderson and Steven Finn both took three wickets as England had the better of the first day of the final Test against South Africa at Lord's.

Though the Proteas recovered from 54-4, Anderson struck with the second new ball to leave the tourists 262-7 at the close.

Earlier, Finn took advantage of some helpful overhead conditions and a little good fortune to run through the visitors' top order.

JP Duminy (61) and Vernon Philander (46 not out) were able to lead the fightback as batting became easier when the grey clouds parted, but Anderson returned late in the day to remove Duminy.
