India pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah and Prasidh Krishna shone brightly on their return, but Barry McCarthy’s unbeaten fifty took Ireland to a competitive 139-7 in the opening T20I of the three-match series, here on Friday.

Bumrah, who spent 11 months away from the game due to a lower-back stress fracture, picked up 2-24, while Prasidh, who also was nursing a lower-back injury, scalped 2-32. Ravi Bishnoi (2-23) and Arshdeep Singh (1-35) also were among wickets.

Things looked bleak for the hosts after they were down 59-6 in the 11th over, but a seventh wicket 57-run partnership between Curtis Campher (39) and McCarthy (51 not out) staged Ireland’s recovery.

At the time of going to press, India were 47-2 in 6.5 overs before rain interrupted the visitors’ chase. Earlier, Bumrah started with a four, but returned to rattle the off-stump of opener Andrew Balbirnie (4).

An over-ambitious Lorcan Tucker (0) then brought out the ramp shot, only to be caught by ’keeper Sanju Samson as Bumrah bagged his second wicket.
