The supreme court 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 apex court had on February 21 appointed its former judge Justice Jain, as the first court-appointed ombudsman for BCCI.
The bench asked Narasimha to act as mediator in the cricket administration disputes. It 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.
