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.
