King Vikramaditya of Ujjain defeated the Shakas:

Indo-Greek kingdoms conquered parts of North West India in the second century BC. They were in turn conquered by Indo-Scythian tribes from Central Asia called Shakas. Shakas penetrated as far as Mathura and Ujjain in India. Around 58 BC, the legendary King of Malwa Vikramaditya defeated the Shakas in Ujjain and expelled them from Central India. In celebration of that, he started a new era Vikram Samvat from 57 BC
