The Battle of Alegaon was fought between Nizam Ali Khan of Hyderabad and Raghunathrao of the Maratha Empire against Madhavrao I of the Maratha Empire.[1] Raghunathrao had established an alliance with Nizam Ali Khan of Hyderabad.[1] When conflict arose between Raghunathrao and Madhavrao I, a joint campaign between Nizam Ali Khan and Raghunathrao resulted in Madhavrao I being heavily defeated.[1] Madhavrao I surrendered on November 12, 1762.[2] Nizam Ali Khan got all of his previously lost territories that were lost at the Battle of Udgir.[1] Madhavrao I submitted to his uncle, Raghunathrao.[1]
