Former Australian cricketer Mark Waugh has attributed the poor performance of the Virat-Kohli led Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) to their death bowling. RCB are currently on the fifth spot, having won three of their eight games and lost five in the tournament. RCB on Tuesday 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 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.

India and RCB pace spearhead Umesh Yadav conceded 59 runs in 4 overs against Rajasthan Royals " most by any bowler this season - while Kiwi Corey Anderson in the same game went for 58 runs in the 22 deliveries that he bowled in that match.
