Captain Charlotte Edwards struck 109 and, in doing so, became the highest run-scorer in women’s one-day internationals.
Although Harmanpreet Kaur knocked an unbeaten century of 107, India finished 32 runs short on 240 for nine after 50 overs.
Brindle helped one of those wickets topple. Her delivery, with the aid of a catch from Laura Marsh, dismissed India’s Karu Jain for 56.
England bowler Katherine Brunt took four wickets for 29.
Edwards, 33, said: “To start the tournament in the manner we did we really hurt me. The girls saw me moping around on Friday night, but I got over it and I knew it was really important for us to be positive.
“Yesterday was about character, coming out and improving on Friday and that’s certainly what we did.
“We are back to the England side I know and we’ve got to keep that standard now.”
