Decision Review System (DRS) ICC's Bad baby turns 5 today. So here are some cricketers and officials thoughts about it.

West Indies legend Joel Garner labelled the system a 'gimmick'. Another West Indian Ramnaresh Sarwan said that he was not a supporter of the experimental referral system. Former umpire Dickie Bird also criticised the system, saying it undermines the authority of on-field umpires.

The cricketing board of India, (BCCI) is not in favour of using the system. Pakistani spinner Saeed Ajmal expressed dissatisfaction over the Decision Review System after a semi-final of 2011 Cricket World Cup against India. He said that DRS showed the line of the ball deviating more than it actually did.

Legendary Adam Gilchrist said, I'm starting to understand India's reluctance to go with the system. It's not a remedy that seems to have cured the problem. In fact, it may even have become more of a problem.

Decision referrals should be taken out of the hands of players and left as a tool of international umpires, Australia's vice-captain Brad Haddin believes.
