Australia get a 'bit of their own medicine' from England quick Mark Wood .
England batsman Jason Roy was pleased Australia tasted "a bit of their own medicine" on Sunday at the MCG after returning quick Mark Wood caused issues for the hosts in England's five wicket win in the first one-day international. While Roy's 180 from 151 balls – the highest score from and England player in ODI history and the biggest ODI score by a player at the MCG – unsurprisingly earned him man of the match honours, Wood's 1-49 from 10 overs was also impressive. Wood missed the Ashes series following injury but bowled with bounce and pace not seen from England during their 4-0 Test series loss.
