PepsiCo's sponsorship of the Pakistan national team runs for three years

PepsiCo maintains that it has made no changes to its sponsorship of the Pakistani national cricket team, despite  allegations of spot-fixing by a number of players.

The International Cricket Council launched an investigation into the third one-day international between England and Pakistan at The Oval on 17 September.

Four members of the team are being investigated - Salman Butt, Mohammad Aamir, Mohammad Asif and Wahab Riaz - none of whom were involved in the match, the BBC reported.

PepsiCo re-signed its sponsorship deal with Pakistan's national team in January this year in a deal set to run for three years.

In a statement issued earlier this month, the soft drinks firm said: "We believe that integrity is the foundation of fair sporting competition.  We are aware of the International Cricket Council's ongoing investigation of individual players during the recent Test match between England and Pakistan.

"At this time we have made no changes to our longstanding cricket sponsorships."
