Dhiman Ghosh was one of four uncapped players include in a 14-member squad for a three-match one-day series against South Africa in March 2008. Dhiman is a talented young wicketkeeper-batsman who made his first-class debut for Chittagong Division in 2004-05. Prior to that, a string of good performances in the age groups earned him a spot in the Bangladesh A team in 2003-04 and he was even selected for Under-19 games that season. A part-time offspinner, his best figures are 3 for 7 against Barisal Division. Despite being Bangladesh's first-choice wicketkeeper, edging out Mushfiqur Rahim, he risked his future by joining the rebel ICL in 2008. He was banned for 10 years by the BCB but he quit the league after one season, thereby reviving hopes of a comeback.
