South's 2NT shows lower 2 suit, hearts and diamonds.

The agreement for value of 2NT is mini-maxi, either a weak hand (8-11) or a very good hand (15+).

The shape is expeted to be 55. Most of the points are expected to be in the 2 long suits.

 

North bid 3D and South passed after a long consideration.

Diamonds are 2-1 and hearts are 4-2, thus North got 12 tricks easily.

 

Who is to blame for missing the game/slam?

 

Mostly South - the hand is too good to pass 3D, South should push up to invite.
Mostly North - With 2 Aces and excellent fit is Diamonds, South needs to invite. Please comment on what you will bid to invite.
Equal both North and South - either hand should bid higher to invite.
Other - Please state your comment.
