For example I have a sequential dataset like 'TST.GL.BSC.DATASET' and want to delete it using a CLIST. How can i prepare a CLIST to delete it and how to execute the CLIST. Please help.

A CLIST wouldn't delete a dataset. That's an operating system function, not a CLIST function.

That being said, your CLIST, since it needs the TSO environment to run in, could just call the TSO command DELETE.

Or, just as you would in batch or in TSO, allocate a DD with that dataset and give it a disposition of OLD DELETE or MOD DELETE. Then, with the subsequent TSO FREE command, the dataset will be deleted.
