Royal Challengers Bangalore are a team that looks quite intimidating on paper every season. And yet they haven't been able to get their hands on the IPL trophy even once.

The Bangalore Derby boasts some of the biggest names in the cricketing world. Over the years, RCB has gone come out of auctions with more or less the same structure of the team.

There are certain areas where RCB hasn't changed much and that may lead to another disappointment in the ongoing season of IPL.

Let us look at the areas where RCB haven't changed much.

RCB have over-relied on a top-heavy batting in every season. The presence of big stars in the top 4 has been a double-edged sword.

On their day, the top 4 can take on any given bowling line-up in the world. With players like Kohli and De Villiers, the chances of failure are not very high.

However, too much pressure on the top-order has seen the side crumbling under pressure at times.

Whenever the top-order has failed to deliver, the side has invariably gone on to lose the match.
