Human headline Kohli is dominating Indian angles in the build-up to the Test series against Australia starting Thursday.
Australia's quest for reverse swing led to a ball-tampering scandal against South Africa in March this year and this will be the first Test at home for the hosts since that infamous Cape Town Test.
Many will be curious about what to expect. "It comes down to them on how well they want to take that responsibility and do the job for the team".
Others will feel Australia are barely recognisable from their last visit, when Steve Smith's side hammered England by 120 runs on the way to an eventual 4-0 Ashes triumph.
"There has been so much talk in the last 10 months that everyone is sick of it", he said ahead of Australia's first home Test since "sandpapergate", where Smith, Warner and Cameron Bancroft tried to alter the ball in South Africa.
A barrage of cultural reviews linking the team's past belligerence with a descent into cheating has hardly helped the mood.
Former captain Michael Clarke lamented that Australia would not win a game without re-embracing their anger. "I haven't played much Test cricket".
"And clearly we've realised that we needed to do some work in some areas, and gaining the respect of our country and our fans is as high a priority as is winning".
Kohli has fought fire with fire in previous battles with Australia, rowing over all manner of subjects and essentially alleging a year ago that Australia were systematically cheating when it came to the Decision Review System (DRS). The series is significant for Virat Kohli's brigade as India has never won a Test series on Australian soil. He further said there will also be pressure on Australia as they have been defeated by Pakistan.
"The trainer and physio have been monitoring the workload so depending on that we thought it is best to take a break and train for the next two days and be fresh for the Test match".
Scorching weather forecast for the opening days could see tempers fray quickly in the field.
"He also likes to run the ball down to third man so may be play around with guys behind the wicket in different areas, just get inside his head as to what we are trying to do".
"When situations are hard, you do find ways to upset the batsman's rhythm and I feel a bit of banter there is not harmful at all".
India opted to hold back the naming of their final XI until the morning of the Test as they mull whether to play all-rounder Hanuma Vihari or hard-hitting batter Rohit Sharma.
