There is no corresponding inbuilt function like roipoly in OpenCV.

Instead, OpenCV provides functions like cv2.polyline() and cv2.drawContours(). If you have the coordinates of the vertices, (as shown in matlab) you can create a numpy array with them. Then draw this polygon on a black image, which gives you the mask image as returned by roipoly. An example is demonstrated below :

import cv2
import numpy as np

img = cv2.imread('eight.png')
mask = np.zeros(img.shape[:2],dtype = 'uint8')

c = [194, 253, 293, 245]
r = [72, 14, 76, 125]

rc = np.array((c,r)).T

mask = cv2.cvtColor(mask,cv2.COLOR_GRAY2BGR)

res = np.hstack((img,mask))

Below is the result I got :
