There are no hard and fast rules about this, however, the teams generally pick up the colour from their national flag

I think the cricket controlling boards have a say or else the sponsorers have a say

There is no hard and fast rule about choosing cricket colours. In most cases, the country adopts colours from their national flags as Pakistan,Bangladesh, England, West Indies, Zimbabwe do. In some cases, the country wears the national colours Australia wears green and gold, Holland wears orange, South Africa wears dark green and New Zealand wears black (silver earlier, as silver and white are their secondary national colours). India wears blue because of the blue Ashok Chakra on the flag, and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) flag is also blue.

If the matches are between the different countries, then the cricket control board of the country decided the colors,. in case of IPL this is decided between the owners of the teams and the IPL administrators
