You appear to be sarcastic. However, let me put Shahadat's stats anyway. He scored 40 and lasted 100 deliveries. If the other batsmen (Shakib, Raqib, and Riyad) managed the same, India might have been in trouble.

Siddons needs to concentrate on the batsmen to stay at least 60 deliveries, regardless of how much they score.

Finally, fielding was the real culprit. If we did not gift Sachin the century, we probably would have a lead of 200, even if India did not declare. India probably would still have won, but the uneven bounce might have made it difficult for the Indian batsmen.
