In fact, McG, probably the majority of balls aren't aimed at the stumps. There are more ways to get a batsman out than by hitting the stumps!

Some bouncers are unfortunate accidents due to pitch conditions, ball out of shape, etc., but most are deliberately bowled, either as a temptation to the batsman to make a bad shot, or in an effort to intimidate him.
