Liton Das is the first wicketkeeper-batsman in Bangladesh considered good enough to be a long-term successor to Mushfiqur Rahim. His domestic exploits for Abahani in the Dhaka Premier League and Rangpur Division in the National Cricket League in the 2014-15 season earned him recognition and later a call-up in the senior side for the Test against India in Fatullah in June 2015.

Hailing from the northern district of Dinajpur, which is around 331km from capital Dhaka, Liton began his adolescent life as a young cricketer in BKSP. He impressed one and all with his heavy run-scoring in school and age-group cricket. He was soon picked in Bangladesh's Under-19 side in 2012, the usual route for any talented young cricketer from BKSP and soon enough, he scored heavily in Youth ODIs too. In two Under-19 World Cups in 2012 and 2014, Liton averaged 51.33 with a century and three fifties.

A compact batsman with a good defensive technique and flair in his strokeplay, he quickly got into domestic first-class cricket in the 2011-12 season. He scored a century and a fifty in his second season but due to preparation for the 2014 Under-19 World Cup in the UAE, he played just two first-class matches in the 2013-14 season.

In the 2014-15 season, he hit big time when he was the second highest-scorer in the Dhaka Premier League for Abahani and later the top-scorer in the first first-class tournament of the season, the NCL. He was soon called into Bangladesh's T20 squad against Pakistan in April 2015 before being handed a Test debut against India in June. He also made his ODI debut against India in the same series.
