Being the butt of English jokes isn't something Mitchell Johnson has learned to embrace but it's at least become far easier to handle.

The fast bowler has copped plenty of flak from fans when playing in England and he's expecting no different in the coming one-day series.

Johnson again drew jeers as he bowled an expensive opening over in Australia's Twenty20 win over England in Southampton on Thursday.

He described his treatment at the Rose Bowl as tame compared to what he's experienced in the past but he's prepared for anything in the next few weeks.

Fans have taken to mocking the left-armer since his forgettable 2009 tour of England but, in some ways, he views the treatment as a compliment.

"I wouldn't say I enjoy copping stick every night," said Johnson.

"But I just go out there and play and it's all a part of the game.

"I don't think I'd cop as much flak as I did if I didn't perform well.

"I've had moments where I haven't performed well but I think in general, I cop it because I think there's a bit of worry there.

"They know I can bowl that quicker ball and rip through sides."

Johnson has made no secret of his initial struggle to deal with taunts from crowd and chants by the Barmy Army.

"Now I've moved on and passed all that and I know what to expect now," he said.

After conceding 17 runs from the first over in Australia's 39-run win over England, Johnson responded well to finish with figures of 2-41 on a pitch that heavily favoured the batsman in Southampton.

The 31-year-old has aspirations of a Test recall after missing the Ashes but he's fully focused on Saturday's second and final T20 in Durham ahead of a five-match ODI series.

Australia have lost six of their past eight one-day matches away to England but Johnson believes a bright start in the T20 could set the tone for Australia to dominate the series.

"We didn't perform too well in the last series here in the one-dayers and we've got a lot to prove," Johnson said.

"We've got a really good squad. Through the summer a lot of these guys performed really well so hopefully they can do that here and hopefully we can win 5-0 in the one-dayers."

Australia will warm up for the one-day series with a 50-over match against Scotland in Edinburgh on Tuesday.

Scotland suffered a blow ahead of the match with captain Kyle Coetzer ruled out due to a wrist injury.
