When was the Third Battle of Panipat fought ?

The Third Battle of Panipat was fought in 1761 between Ahmed Shah Abdali, the successor of the Persian invader Nadir Shah, and the Marathas, where Abdali inflicted a crushing defeat on the Marathas. Neither the Rajputs nor the Jats nor the Sikhs came to support the Marathas.

Once routed, the Marathas lost their supremacy in the North, and whatever unity existed between the five Maratha powers, was soon dissolved and eventually it led to the disintegration of the Maratha empire and the rise of the British influence in India.
