But having said they would treat Tuesday´s match as a dress rehearsal for a winner-takes-all game at the World Cup, England will be delighted by this comprehensive success.
England defeated India by 8 wickets in the third ODI on Tuesday to seal the three-match one-day series by 2-1 The series defeat was team India first bilateral loss under Virat Kohli as many players failed to live up to the expectation in the final match.
Talking about the ODI series, England and India both are on the same level right now with one win in their accounts. If Roy misses out, Hampshire captain James Vince could be in line for his first ODI appearance in almost two years, although Monday saw England call up Kent's Sam Billings as additional batting cover for the series finale in Leeds.
India and England go into the 3rd and final One-day worldwide of the series tied at 1-1.
"I've not heard the end of it".
Should Roy be unavailable it is expected that James Vince will come into the side with Billings there as squad cover for the match at Headingley.
England, on the other hand, got a boost after winning in the previous encounter, and will aim to continue the same way as advised by their key batsman Joe Root post the last match.

The victory improves Croatia's previous best showing at the World Cup, which ended in a 1998 semifinal loss to the host French. The two were seen reuniting after the game, kissing and embracing among empty seats, later joined by family members.
Yet England are determined to include him at Edgbaston on August 1 even though if the Test goes the distance he will have to travel from Birmingham to Bristol on Sunday night to be ready to defend himself on Monday August 6.
England, who in limited-overs cricket are captained by Eoin Morgan, are now number one in the ODI rankings and among the favourites to win next year's World Cup on home soil.
Morgan added: "I think we were outstanding".
Vince´s frustrating England career has seen him repeatedly get out when well set and Tuesday was a case in point when he ws run out for a run-a-ball 27, although it needed a brilliant one-handed take by wicket-keeper Dhoni, from Hardik Pandya´s throw, to complete the dismissal.
"You'd think if you were going to do a celebration like that, you'd have smacked it 30 yards.it was just an absolute vehicle crash".
"It was the most embarrassing thing I've done on a cricket field".
