Pace bowler Steven Finn is crediting team unity for England's encouraging first day in the third and final cricket test against South Africa at Lord's.
At stumps, the Proteas are 262/7, after a rare failure by their top order.
England's build up to the test was mired in controversy, following the omission of Kevin Pietersen.
Finn says that only served to make the players more determined.
"We've got through tough times together, we've done it lots of times in the past and today was a great example of how we pull together."
South Africa leads the series 1-nil.
