Sourav Ganguly has been the Man of the Match thrice when India has beat England in ODIs in England. India would be playing their 1st ODI of the 5 matches in Bristol on 25th Aug 2014. Some positives that India can take from this match is that they have already defeated England on this ground once in 2007 where we saw brilliant batting display by Dravid and Tendulkar. It will be good see if the young guns can do the same this time round.
