Riding on a spectacular grab from Harry Brook, skipper Ben Stokes got the prized scalp of Mikyle Louis in the ongoing first Test between England and West Indies at Lord's. 

After opting to bowl first, the hosts got a dream start to the game as debutant Gus Atkinson dismissed Kraigg Brathwaite and Kirk McKenzie in quick succession. 

Meanwhile, England's man with a golden arm, Ben Stokes, pushed the visitors down on the mat, getting rid of Louis, who looked set in the middle. 

Watch - Stokes gets Louis as Brook takes a stunner

The incident occurred during the 22nd over of West Indies' innings when Louis was trying to steady the ship alongside youngster Alick Athanaze. 

However, Stokes' decision to bring himself into the attack worked wonders as he got rid of the well-set Louis with a beauty. 

Coming from over the wicket, Stokes bowled a good length delivery that seamed away from Louis after pitching around the off stump. 

As the batter tried to play it soft hands, the ball flew towards the slips after being deflected off his outside edge. 

Although the ball was travelling quickly, Harry Brook showcased exemplary athleticism to grab a one-handed stunner in the slips. 

Meanwhile, West Indies are in a spot of bother, placed at 46 for three in 23.4 overs, with Athanaze and Kavem Hodge unbeaten in the middle.
