Speedster Zaheer Khan produced a lethal spell to claim six wickets to help Worcestershire restrict Derbyshire to 338 in the Division two 2 county cricket match.
Zaheer returned with figures of 6 for 60 and left Derbyshire reeling at 138 for six in 40 overs at one stage after accounting for three crucial blows at the top of order.
Worcestershire were two for no loss at close on day one at New Road on Wednesday.
Wicketkeeper Graeme Welch put Derbyshire's innings back on the track by scoring 94 runs and managed to pull his team out of the danger.
He got an able support from captain James Pipe, who scored 57 runs.
The Baroda paceman came back to halt their partnership as he claimed both the wickets.
Zaheer had turned a match haul of 10 for 140 against Somerset in the previous match.
