Gasping for breath after six successive defeats, Virat Kohli led Bangalore will look to snap their winless streak and stay afloat when they take on an inconsistent Punjab in a must-win IPL encounter on Saturday.

Nothing seems to be going right for Bangalore, who slumped to their sixth straight loss after going down against Delhi in their IPL match last Sunday.

Kohli, who was recently named the Leading Cricketer of the year for the third successive time by Wisden Almanack, will hope that fortunes finally knock on the doors of Bangalore as they need to win their next eight matches to salvage any hope of making it to the play-off.

Punjab, on the other hand, has won four matches out of seven but they have maintained dominance on the home ground.

However, Punjab failed to defend 197 against Mumbai Indians in their last match with Kieron Pollard's knock of 31-ball 83 blowing them away.
