England struggled last time against spin in the sub-continent but Swann has insisted that it must be a team effort if his bowling is to help win the series.
"As a spinner it stands to reason that when you go to the sub-continent people are going to look to you and how you bowl," Sky Sports News quotes Swann as saying.
"However if we do turn up just expecting the spinner to win the series for us then we're screwed.
"The key to Test cricket is that the more you play the more confident you get and the more confident you get ergo you bowl more consistently."
The first Test takes place in Ahmedabad on November 15.
