Former Australian batsman Mark Waugh has attributed the poor performance of the Virat-Kohli led Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the ongoing edition of the IPL to their death bowling.

RCB are currently on the fifth spot, having won three of their eight games and lost five in the Indian Premier League.

On Tuesday night, RCB defeated defending champions Mumbai Indians by 14 runs in Bengaluru.

“Death bowling is a major area of concern for RCB currently as their bowlers are too expensive towards the end,” Waugh, a Star Sports Select Dugout expert, was quoted as saying in a media release.

“They have had chances to win games but they just can”t find the right set of combination in the last couple of overs which is affecting the team’s results,” added Waugh, who played 128 Tests for Australia and scored 8,029 runs.
