On being asked about all the attention on him in Australia, prior to the series, with every former and current cricketer discussing plans to contain him, Kohli said he believes all the members of his team can change a match at any moment.

The Test series comes after a two-match series against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates where the first Test was drawn before Australia suffered a heavy 373-run defeat in game two.

He said: "The point is, we were caught for blatantly cheating and we have to rectify that as soon as possible to earn back the respect of the cricketing public in Australia and worldwide".

That was the closest India has come at winning at series in Australia in 11 attempts.

"Obviously there are going to be times when you have to put the batsman under pressure, not necessarily crossing the line but just getting into their heads".

"Ishant leading the attack on his fourth tour (of Australia) now, that's heaps of experience which is very important", he added.

"The quicks are going to have to bowl a bit more and we have full faith that Nathan Lyon can do the job in any conditions, he's shown that over the last few years, he bowled a mountain of overs in the UAE and our quicks are fresh so we can cover that, Travis Head bowls some handy offspinners so we have options there but we'll be backing our bowlers".

"Take the word "elite" out, ok, honesty is a crucial value".

India (from): Virat Kohli (captain), Murali Vijay, Lokesh Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Hanuma Vihari, Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant, Ravichandran Ashwin, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah. Virat at the other end was really aggressive and going after bowlers.

Team India has never toured Australia with so much limelight.

"I think from last time round, I've become more assured of myself, I don't really find the need to prove anything to anyone", he told Macquarie Sports Radio at the weekend.

"We will be taking no prisoners but are focusing on our game rather than what is happening outside".

India have named a 12-man squad and will pick between Rohit Sharma and Hanuma Vihari for the final batting place.
