Veteran England all-rounder Ben Stokes was seen meeting football team's skipper Harry Kaner and other footballers of the national team during their practice session ahead of their UEFA Euro 2024. A video of the same surfaced on social media as the England Test captain was seen in all black and wearing some accessory around his neck.

Led by Harry Kane, England will participate in the 24-team tournament, beginning on June 15th, with Germany taking on Scotland. England will play their first match against Serbia on the 17th. The Englishmen are also the runners-up, losing to Italy in the 2020 edition of the tournament.

Ben Stokes shines for Durham in County Championship cricket after ruling himself out of T20 World Cup selection:

On the cricketing side of things, Stokes bowled full throttle for Durham in the County Championship, notably taking 8 wickets against Somerset to fashion an innings win for his side. The New Zealand-born cricketer issued a statement on the same, as quoted by ecb.co.uk:

"I’m working hard and focusing on building my bowling fitness back up to fulfil a full role as an all-rounder in all formats of cricket. Opting out of the IPL and the World Cup will hopefully be a sacrifice that allows me to be the all-rounder I want to be for the foreseeable future. The recent Test tour of India highlighted how far behind I was from a bowling point of view after my knee surgery and nine months without bowling. I’m looking forward to playing for Durham in the County Championship before the start of our Test summer."

England will open their campaign against Scotland on June 4th.
