Why can't BCCI use their financial clout to turn matches in India's favour, what's the use of so much influence if you don't use. Whenever India wins they are falsely accused of doing it anyways so why not actually do it for a change. Sirius queschion.
The sad part is BCCI did set up the matches to be in India's favor. That's what all WC host nations do, they decide the schedule, the venues, the rates, and more.
The funny part is India still got steam rolled. So to answer your sirious queschion - they exerted their influence the best they could.
