London:Dinesh Mongia's 67 in the second innings went in vain as Gloucestershire beat Leicestershire by seven wickets in a County Championship Division Two match at Grace Road.

In reply, Gloucestershire scored 282 for nine in their second innings and Mongia claimed a wicket conceding 23 runs in his nine overs.
