Meanwhile, MS Dhoni bagged five catches and became the only wicket-keeper in the world to as many scalps in a T20I match. He was there with centurion Rohit Sharma when India needed to pull themselves out of a brief slowdown when the 15th and 16th over produced seven runs and the wicket of Virat Kohli.
Jos Buttler led the way, striking seven fours on his way to a 21-ball 34, but by the time he was bowled by Siddarth Kaul (2-35), Roy had overtaken him.
This is India's sixth consecutive T20I series' win, which is part of an unbeaten run stretching back to September 2017.
Latest Update Ind vs Eng 3rd T20I:: Hardik Pandya's final six to clinch the game with 8 balls to go in the match has given India the three match T20 worldwide series against England 2-1.
Kohli was left in disbelief when he drove a delivery straight back to Jordan, who took a catch at waist height, but Pandya picked up where the captain had left off. Rohit duly reached his hundred, and Pandya provided the exclamation mark with a six off the fourth ball of the 19th over.
Hardik returned with career best bowling figures (4/38) but England posted a challenging 198/9.
In the next ball, Roy brought up his fifty in style, slapping Chahal for a six over long-on.
But India's strength in depth meant the runs just kept coming.
IPL franchises were anxious about his lack of T20 match time and he was less attractive because, owing to England's Test series with Pakistan, he would not have been available for the whole season.
"That total isn't defendable when a guy comes out and plays like that on a small ground. I think we competed quite well but England were the better side, that's why they came through today (Friday)", Kohli said after the defeat in Cardiff. "There was a lot more clarity in the shots that we played".
Virat Kohli came in and caressed his second ball to the midwicket fence, with as much as a feather touch.
'The pitch was really flat, we enjoyed ourselves as batsmen.
The all-rounder was hit for 22 runs in his first over by Roy but he showed good composure to bounce back in his next three. But the character our bowlers showed, that's something we're very proud of.
