There is much more to look out for sports enthusiasts as we end June.

Here is all major sporting action that will take place across arenas next week i.e. June 24-30.

Cricket

After two stages where teams fought in the round robin format, we finally have the knockouts in the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2024. The first semifinal takes place on Thursday (Friday IST) while the second begins the day after that.

And the best part is that all eight Super 8 teams are still in with a chance to advance to the knockouts and thus be two wins away from the trophy.

The title clash takes place on Saturday, June 29 in Barbados.

While Indian men fight hard in the Caribbean for the trophy, the women will also be on the field. The one-off Test against South Africa begins this Friday, June 28 in Chennai.

Football

The two big continental trophies are on the line, one in America and the other in Europe.

By the weekend, the Round of 16 in the Euro 2024 will begin but the interesting action takes place before that. At the end of Matchday 2, only three teams, Germany, Spain and Portugal, have been able to confirm a place in last 16. 13 spots are still up for grabs and the Matchday 3 begins Sunday (Monday IST).

Defending champions Italy will be up against Croatia, England will face Slovenia as the race for the final 16 enters in the last stage.

While the tussle for Round of 16 places goes on in Germany, in the United States, Copa America will enter Matchday 2.
