From experience, he cannot kill your nat with one cannon fast enough. The hatch will take some hits, yes, but if you got your pool down on time (15), it will finish in time to build 2-3 spines out of cannon range. You then pick them up and burrow them in on the cannon.
The key is preventing that second cannon from getting finished.
