Cricket World Cup: No complacency from focused Australians.

Adam Gilchrist says Australia are not being weighed down by their position as the World Cup's overwhelming favourites.

Australia have won all of their eight matches as part of a worldrecord run of 14 successive wins. That, together with two backto-the-wall victories against England and New Zealand, has created an aura of invincibility around the world champions. Vice-captain Gilchrist, speaking on the eve of their final Super Six match against Kenya, said the side were not about to start believing the hype.

'The expectation that we just have to go out and win is brewing, but we have addressed it and no one is nervous from that weight of expectation' he said.
