Rajasthan Royals, who had partnered with Niine India ahead of Indian Premier League’s 2020 season, posted a video on their social media handles on Saturday where players talk about period in an attempt to break the stigma around the topic.

Royals, the champions of the inaugural edition, are the first IPL team to have a partnership with a feminine hygiene products brand, Niine India.

“A conversation of honesty, information and breaking the stigma. We did it and so can you - let’s talk periods,” tweeted Royals.
