    The Supreme Court on Thursday appointed senior advocate P S Narasimha, who is assisting the apex court as an amicus curiae in the BCCI matter, as mediator for resolving various disputes related to cricket administration in the country.

    A bench of Justices S A Bobde and A M Spare was informed by Narasimha that former apex court judge Justice (retd) D K Jain has assumed charge as the ombudsman of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

    The bench said, the game must go on, asking Narasimha to act as mediator in the cricket administration disputes.

    The bench also asked Narasimha to look into the dispute relating to release of funds by the court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) to various cricket associations.

    Besides, it restrained all other courts in India from entertaining or proceeding with any matter pertaining to BCCI and state cricket associations.

    The apex court had on February 21 appointed its former judge Justice Jain, as the first court-appointed ombudsman for BCCI.
