The Supreme Court on Thursday appointed senior advocate P. S. Narasimha as mediator for resolving various disputes related to cricket administration in the country.

Narasimha had been assisting the apex court as an amicus curiae in the BCCI case.

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 the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

"The game must go on," the bench said, 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 to various cricket associations.

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