Opting to bat first at the Vivian Richards Cricket Stadium in Antigua, West Indies struggled from the outset and Mohammed, with exactly 50, opener Kraigg Brathwaite with a pedantic 42 and Jonathan Carter, 39, were the only real bright spots in their total of 225 off 47.5 overs.
England wobbled in their chase before Joe Root struck an unbeaten 90 and Chris Woakes hit 68 not out to steer England to 226 for six off 48.2 overs.
