Kohli spoke to the media a day before the team's departure for
England, with their first game of the tournament coming against South
Africa on June 5th.
The 30-year-old believed he has a 'very balanced' and 'very strong'
squad at his disposal, but emphasised that they key will be how they use
their ability on the biggest stage of all.
"White-ball cricket, playing in England, playing an ICC tournament,
the conditions are not that different or that difficult I would say,
compared to Test cricket," Kohli said.
"Pressure is the most important thing in the World Cup and not
necessarily the conditions. From that point of view, it will be helpful.
"Secondly, all the bowlers that are in the squad, even during the IPL
they were preparing themselves to be in the zone for 50-over cricket.
"And if you saw the guys bowling - no one looked tired or fatigued after bowling four overs. They were very fresh.
"The mindset or the ultimate goal is to be fit for the 50-over format
and not let their fitness come down and that was communicated before
the IPL started.
The India skipper is also pleased with the balance of his squad as he feels they have most areas covered.
Also, most of the squad will into the global tournament in good form after excelling in the recent India Premier League (IPL).
Kohli continued: "We go into the World Cup feeling very balanced very
strong as a side. You saw in the IPL as well, all the players that are
in the squad were in great form and played really well.
"It is probably the most challenging World Cup of all the three that I
have been part of because of the format and looking at the strength of
the all the sides as well.
"If we live up to our skill sets and our standards that we set for
ourselves, we'll be on the right side of the result more often.
"That is going to be key. Every game you have to play to the best of
your potential because it's not a group stage anymore, it's playing
"The best thing is that we'll have four tough games straight up and that will set the tone nicely for us.
"Everyone has to be at their best intensity from the first match onwards and we don't have any room for complacency."
