Anderson strikes early
England included two uncapped players for the fifth Investec Ashes Test but it was the familiar face of James Anderson who drew first blood on the first morning at the Kia Oval.
With a 3-0 lead ensuring the series is already won England took the chance to blood all-rounder Chris Woakes and spinner Simon Kerrigan in place of the injured Tim Bresnan and the dropped Jonny Bairstow.
Australia won the toss and opted to bat first, meaning both men would get an early chance to prove their credentials, but after an hour's play Anderson's dismissal of David Warner for six was the only breakthrough as the tourists reached 37 for one in the opening hour.
The wicket brought the Lancastrian level with Bob Willis on 325 Test scalps, second only to Sir Ian Botham on England's all-time list.
England's team sheet was a surprise, leaving just five specialist batsmen and including a second frontline spinner on home turf for the first time since the opening Ashes Test of 2009.
That meant disappointment for Chris Tremlett, who had been expected to make a first appearance in 18 months on his home ground, and fellow paceman Steven Finn.
The pre-match talk had been of a lively Oval pitch, but there was little to suggest undue bounce in the first couple of overs.
That did not prevent Stuart Broad from testing Chris Rogers early on, beating the opener with his fifth and sixth balls of the day.
The first of those took the edge but fell just short of slip and the follow-up moved off the seam and resulted in a loud but unsuccessful lbw appeal.
Anderson was the man to make the breakthrough, though.
Warner, having already played one streaky shot off Broad, followed one that went across him and offered a regulation edge to Matt Prior behind the wicket.
That brought Anderson level with Willis and the arrival of Shane Watson at number three - another new position for the nomadic all-rounder - offered the tantalising prospect of another.
England have had great success getting Watson lbw in this series and Anderson almost had him for eight when he played around his front pad.
Umpire Aleem Dar decided the ball was drifting down leg side and England wisely opted not to review that verdict.
Watson, as ever, looked to counter-punch and managed three early boundaries.
Woakes was thrown the ball in the 13th over, with one loose ball to Watson spoiling an otherwise tidy effort.
