I am Maratha and even we required their assistance in battling the Afghans in 1759 yet offered governorship to Adina Beg for 75 lakhs every year. Just if Maratha wouldn't have pillaged and plundered Delhi, they most likely could have unified and vanquished the Afghans in the third skirmish of panipat. So it was exercise learnt for Maratha Empire.

Abdali's goods included 22,000 Maratha ladies being taken to Afghanistan to be sold into bondage. In transit they were to be utilized by the Afghan officers to fulfill their desire.
