Roston Chase led a middle-order fightback with an unbeaten 98 as Windies held up India's progress on day one of the second and final Test in Hyderabad.
The incident is the second close encounter Kohli has had with an Indian cricket fan after he was approached by a group of fans hoping for a selfie during the first Test between India and the West Indies at Rajkot last week. He was ably supported by fellow teammate and spinner Kuldeep Yadav.
Holder gloved an Umesh bouncer behind late in the day, leaving Chase and Devendra Bishoo (2no) to steer Windies through to stumps.

The hurricane ranked 4 on the five-category Saffir-Simpson scale when it made landfall on the Florida Panhandle on Wednesday. Authorities also are searching for a missing woman whose vehicle was swept away by floodwaters.
Like in their defeat in the Rajkot series-opener, the West Indies batsmen were confounded by Kuldeep's left-arm wrist-spin and both Shimron Hetmyer and Sunil Ambris were dismissed by well-disguised googlies.
Chase then found an able ally in Holder, who celebrated his return from injury with a composed 52 before Umesh strangled him down the leg side for a soft caught-behind dismissal in the final session. Jomel Warrican and captain Jason Holder, who returned after missing out of the first Test, replaced them. The 26-year-old has gone for scans with his further participation in the match to be determined.
