Sydney: Former Australian cricketer Dean Jones has said that although he does not like the way the Decision Review System (DRS) is used, its concept is appealing to him.

Jones believes that the current period is the best time for a player to play Test cricket as the Ashes cricket is at its best, television ratings are impressive and production is `terrific`.

According to an Australian Newspaper, Jones however, believes that the DRS should be used only by the umpires at their discretion, adding that he hates to see players challenge the umpire`s decision.

Although Jones further said that he has no problems when a match has neutral umpires, however, he prefers to have the best umpires available for Test series such as the Ashes, even if the umpires come from England.

Citing the example of the English umpires on the 1989 Ashes tour, Jones hailed them as `terrific`, saying that they gave 17 leg-before wickets to former Australian cricketer Terry Alderman.
