A bench comprising Justices S A Bobde and A M Sapre also restrained all other courts in India from entertaining or proceeding with any matter pertaining to Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and state cricket associations till Narasimha submits his report in the court on the disputes.
"P S Narasimha, the amicus curiae, is appointed to act as mediator in relation to any dispute raised in the applications before us," the bench said.
It said Narasimha, assisting the court as an amicus curiae in the BCCI matter, will hear the parties on the issues raised by them and make recommendations to the court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) for BCCI.
"In case the parties are not satisfied, this court will hear the matter," the bench said and asked him to look into the issue raised by several cricket associations about release of funds to them and make appropriate recommendations to the CoA.
Senior counsel Kapil Sibal, appearing for a state cricket association, told the court that it has complied with all the court-approved recommendations of Justice R M Lodha panel on reforms in the cricket body.
Sibal said there was some issue pertaining to certain provisions in newly approved constitution of BCCI which goes beyond the Lodha panel recommendations.
"We will request P S Narasimha to hear you (associations) and then ask the BCCI to resolve them. The game must go on," the bench said.
At the outset, when the amicus said that several interim applications were pending in the court, the bench said it would like to hear the matter continuously and not on "piecemeal" basis.
Initially, the bench suggested that the ombudsman may be asked to look into some pending issues which can be mediated among the parties.
Later, the court said Narasimha can also do this work and appointed him as mediator.
During the hearing, the bench also said, "The mediator should get some fees also".
However, Narasimha said, "I do not want any fees for this".
Justice Bobde, in a lighter vein, said, "These days people do not trust those who do not take money. It is strange but people think there is something wrong."
The bench also dealt with the application filed by the Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) about their stadium at Pune.
"We are facing attachment from bank. Let them (CoA) pay money directly to the bank and ensure that stadium is not auctioned. The stadium has been attached," Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for MCA, told the bench.
One of the advocates told the court that some officer bearers of Bihar Cricket Association has been allegedly caught on camera while demanding money for selecting players and FIR has also been lodged in the matter.
The bench asked the CoA to look into this issue saying, "CoA seems to comprise of those who know the game. We will request you (CoA) as you are known at the moment, you have the credentials. You should look into it".
Senior advocate P S Patwalia, appearing for former BCCI president Anurag Thakur, said Thakur has filed an application seeking expunction of certain remarks made against him by the apex court in its earlier order.
"I (Thakur) have been asked (by court) to cease and desist from associating with BCCI. I (Thakur) have dedicated my life for cricket. I have built a world class stadium in Himachal Pradesh," Patwalia said, adding that contempt and perjury proceedings against Thakur have already been closed.
The bench asked him to wait for sometime saying, "there is nothing urgent in this".
The court said that the matter will come up for hearing after Narasimha will file his report on the pending disputes.
In 2017, the apex court had appointed CoA, headed by former Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) Vinod Rai, to run the affairs of BCCI and implement the court-approved recommendations of Justice R M Lodha panel on reforms in the cash-rich cricket body.
